Description

Join the Blue Ridge PRISM for Our Summer Invasives Workshop

Concerned about Japanese stiltgrass, Oriental bittersweet, or multiflora rose swallowing up your land? Our summer workshop will teach you how to recognize these and other pervasive invasives in their summer garb and how to most effectively control them at this time of year.

Topics covered in this session include:
- Identifying invasive plants in summer.
- Which invasives you can best treat now.
- Which invasives you should treat later in fall.
- Best summer-time practices for each invasive.
- Using manual & mechanical control methods.
- Methods for controlling invasives with herbicides.
- Choosing the right herbicide and equipment, and using it properly.
- Planning a work schedule with best timings for multiple plants.

AND: We’ll have an invasive plant ID clinic, so bring samples of your mystery plants and we’ll identify them!

Each session includes classroom and outdoor instruction (weather permitting) and discussion.
