Invasive Species

Know your invader: Invasive plant species in Connecticut --  why they’re here and ways to remove them

Invasive plants can be an annoyance in your yard and difficult to remove, but some of the worst problems are on local plant and wildlife species and even us.  Dr. Maura Bozeman will introduce you to some of the common plant invaders in Connecticut and the multiple ways these species cause problems.  She will also discuss the best methods to remove them, but rarely is the solution simple once species are established.   Many plant specimens will be on-hand to help you learn identification.

Registration is required.
