There once was a geek on Nantucket  

The Sconset Dump, a now closed landfill on the island of Nantucket, is no ordinary dump. You'd be hard pressed to find another landfill that is considered conservation land - this one harbors a number of rare plant species, but also some of the best examples of invasive plant populations that can be found anywhere on the island.

This week Nantucket is celebrating their Biodiversity Initiative with a series of field trips (.pdf), and I'll be leading one this Saturday afternoon at the Sconset Dump to check out the invasive plants there. If you're in the neighborhood, come check it out, and you'll get a free laminated guide to the Invasive Plants of Nantucket.
