Invasive Plant Control 

Invasive pest plants are an expensive and frustrating problem for landowners of all stripes.  This workshop will cover a general introduction to non-native invasive species, how and why certain plants become problematic, how to identify the most common pest plants that plague this area, and the ecological concerns that result, methods of control -- mechanical, chemical, and biological -- for both small scale use by homeowners and larger-scaled treatments for city parks and green spaces and other areas under land management.  Instructor: John Evans, Reflection Riding Arboretum and Nature Center Curator and Greenhouse manager.

This course is an elective course and provides 4 credits toward the completion of the Certificate in Native Plants program.
