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 Japanese stiltgrass and beefsteak plant. Native alternatives to common non-native, 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 7th) followed by a 3 hour field session (Saturday, August 10th from 9:00am-11:30am) in Rock Creek Park.
The Metrorail station is Brookland-CUA (Red Line) which is a 10 minute walk. The Metrobus stop is near the intersection of 12th and Irving Street NE (served by the H8) or the Brookland-CUA Metro station (served by the H2, H4, H6, G8, R4 and 80). At our office, there is ample street parking and we accommodate bicycles on-site.
