Program: In this comprehensive symposium you will learn how invasive plants are changing our gardens, fields and forests forever. You will also learn what you and others can do to help win this battle to save our native landscape.
You will learn how to identify invasives plants in their various stages of growth and how to control them safely with tools and herbicides specific to each plant—and most importantly, why you would want to. It's surprisingly fast and easy to control large numbers of invasive plants with the correct information.
