3 Ways to Fight Invasive Plants

Thursday, November 16, 2023 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm

Explore ways to reclaim backyards, neighborhoods, and parks from the bad effects of nonnative invasive plants. This talk emphasizes prevention, identification, and low-impact removal techniques. We also discuss the role of municipalities 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 sponsored by the Guilford Land Trust and the Connecticut Invasive Plants Working Group education committee.
