Identifying and Controlling Invasive Plants

March 28, 2023 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Invasive plants grow rapidly, spread aggressively, and displace our native plants. They can cause a decline in species diversity, inhibit regeneration success, slow natural succession, and degrade wildlife habitats, directly impacting food webs. This presentation will discuss why we should all be concerned about invasive plants, particularly if we are interested in songbirds. An integrated vegetation control approach will be examined. The presentation will teach you how to identify some of the most common invasive plants and introduce you to various control measures used for each. See the presentation by clicking on arrow below:
