About this Event

Managing invasive plant species is a daunting task. By exploring the concepts that define invasiveness, the workshop will provide a context for understanding and identifying several species of concern, including multiflora rose, honeysuckle, autumn olive, swallowwort, porcelain berry. We will touch on downy brome and hoary alyssum, two species of concern to area pasture managers. The workshop will discuss a range of control strategies for all species will be addressed for homeowners, farms and municipalities.
