Making Sense of Invasive Plants and Unwanted Vegetation

Saturday, June 17, 2023 -
10:00am to 11:30am

Reclaim your home and neighborhood landscapes. This talk emphasizes prevention, identification, and low-impact removal techniques. We also discuss the role of municipalities and other cooperators in invasive plant prevention and management. An extensive handout is included. 

We'll discuss the following topics: 

  • What is an invasive plant?
  • What is a "state-listed" invasive plant and how does it differ from a "weed"?
  • Can native plants be invasive? 
  • What tools are available for invasive plant identification?
  • How can we fight back effectively while minimizing herbicides?
  • How long does invasive plant eradication take?
  • What's the role of proper disposal?

This seminar is co-sponsored by Native Plant Trust and Connecticut Forest and Park Association. It will be held at CPFA headquarters in Middlefield, CT. Space is limited; registration is required.
