Mt Lebanon Nature Conservancy Annual Meeting and Lecture

The Dirty Dozen: Invasive Plants From Your Yard to Our Natural Areas    A presentation by Trish Beckjord, and the Mt Lebanon Nature Conservancy

Does your yard give safe harbor to a plant that creates problems in our green spaces and natural areas? It might be the one you dutifully trim and shape or the one whose flower and fruit you enjoy seeing. The horticultural industry has inadvertently marketed a number of introduced species over the years, sometimes even with good intentions.  These plants – including trees and shrubs – have escaped our yards and are now causing a host of problems in our local, regional and state natural areas. 

In this presentation, Trish Beckjord, a landscape architect, member of the Mount Lebanon Nature Conservancy, and advocate for including more native plants in our gardens, will identify some of the culprits that might be quite at home in your yard, the problems they cause and some attractive alternatives for you to consider. 

November 6 from 2-4 p.m

This event will be conducted via the free video conferencing software Zoom and a Library staff member will be supervising the session.  The Librarian coordinating the event will email each registrant a Zoom meeting invitation before the start of the program.  Zoom is available as a free desktop (for Windows, MacOS, and Linux Operating systems) and mobile application for Android and Apple iOS devices. Once Zoom is installed, you will be able to join the virtual Library program.

Registration is required.  By registering for this event you have agreed to comply with the library's patron behavior policy. All non-compliant participants will be immediately and permanently blocked from further participation.  Because the Librarian facilitating the event will not be able to provide live technical support during the virtual program, it is strongly encouraged you familiarize yourself with Zoom in advance of the program. You can also contact the Library’s Virtual Reference Service for assistance learning Zoom.  You can also join a test meeting to familiarize yourself with Zoom.
