Event Details

Come learn about non-native, invasive plants and how they are threatening our native landscapes. Participants will learn how to identify and control species of non-native, invasive plants found in the Washington, D.C. area including beefsteak plant, Japanese stiltgrass and mile-a-minute. Native alternatives to common non-native, invasive plants and incoming invasive plants will also be discussed.

The course consists of two parts on two different days: a 2.5 hour classroom session at the Casey Trees headquarters (August 20th) followed by a 2.5 hour field session (Saturday, August 23rd from 9:00am-11:30am) in Rock Creek Park.
