The control of purple loosestrife in wetlands and waterfowl identification are two topics on tap at Feathers and Flowers '97.

The annual Nannen Arboretum workshop will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Cornell Cooperative Extension Building on Parkside Drive. A perennial plant sale will also be held to benefit the Nannen Arboretum.

Tom Jurczak, a state Department of Environmental Conservation wildlife biologist, will discuss identification and habitat requirements of local waterfowl. A videotape will be shown detailing Cornell's research in preventing purple loosestrife from crowding out native wetland plants and releases of a leaf feeding beetle to control the noxious weed.
