Karyn Molines will give a general overview on the threats that non-native invasive plants pose to our native plants and ecosystems. She'll cover identification of the most common non-native invasive species as well as how you can control them in your yard. We'll have available a listing of non-native invasive plant removal projects happening around the state where you can learn first-hand how to protect our native plants and their habitats.
There will be a mailing party before the meeting, starting at 6:30pm. Volunteers are welcome - the more helping hands, the merrier!
