Help Save our Native Plants

June 6 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Native plants are suffering from invasive species that crowd them out and offer little or no nourishment to our native animals. We will focus our awareness on Ten Nasty Invaders, learning how to identify them and what tools and strategies we can use to manage: honeysuckle, privet, buckthorn, multiflora rose, oriental bittersweet, Japanese knotweed, autumn olive, Japanese barberry, swallowwort, and parsnip. After an introduction to the ten invasive species, we will hike around the East Ithaca Nature Preserve and the adjacent Pine Tree Wildlife Preserve to see what the combination of invasive pests and white-tailed deer are doing to our natural areas. We will also practice some invasive removal, focusing on the different tools and techniques for getting rid of them. No registration required.
