For you environmentally conscious folk, the existence of Tamarix ramosissima probably isn't news, but you may not be aware of the full impact of this invasive salt cedar tree. Today at Colorado College's Gaylord Hall, join Shane Heschel, professor of botany, as he discusses the physiological makeup of this wetland species, and how it out-competes native flora for soil moisture. He'll go over management strategies, and the effectiveness of clearing Tamarix from our riparian areas. Heschel's research focuses on invasive plants and their water use, so he is the go-to source for Tamarix info in the area. Reservations for this lunch and lecture are required; email swshulbert@coloradocollege.edu to RSVP. Noon-1:30 p.m. 902 N. Cascade Ave. $17. 389-6249. — Alissa Smith
