Native Alternatives to Common Invasive Plants
June 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Spring is here and it’s time to start thinking about gardening! Selecting what plants you will grow can be exciting but you could be playing a role in the introduction of invasive plants. Many invasive plants were once considered desirable ornamentals that were intentionally introduced to gardens and landscapes only to escape into our natural environments. You can play a vital role in the introduction and prevention of invasive plants by choosing to grow native species and taking action to control invasives you may find on your property.
This webinar will discuss native alternatives to common invasive garden plants, the benefits of native plants, general control methods, and a Pledge to Protect you can take to protect your garden and favorite outdoor spaces from invasive species.
This event is in observance of New York’s annual Invasive Species Awareness Week NYISAW a state-wide invasive species outreach campaign.
