Event Details

In our backyards invasive plant species alter the ecosystem by crowding out our native plants that support pollinators and birds. Christian Allyn will share solutions to help us identify and remove these unwanted troublesome invaders. He will take a close look at the characteristics of five of the worst offenders in our region and give us the knowledge along with the cultural, mechanical and chemical tools to help us take an active role in repairing our gardens and land. He will make suggestions for replacement plants to use after eliminating these invaders. You will have an opportunity to ask questions so come prepared with your invasive species problems.
