For Home Owners, Gardeners, Landscape Professionals and Native Plant Lovers
(REGISTRATION IS CLOSED)
Learn how to control nonnative, invasive plants in your yard, town and watershed in a workshop that will be presented in 2016 at three different locations: Canton Public Library (April 9), Pembroke Public Library (April 16) and The Spire in Plymouth (May 1).
This three-hour workshop is designed for people looking for basic information, how-to advice and local expertise. It will include an Overview of nonnative, invasive plant characteristics and control, Case Studies, and How to Move Forward in controlling target plants.
Several professionals and local property owners will share their experiences with small-scale projects fighting species of local concern. Lessons and advice will be applicable to a wide variety of other invasive plants.
Finally, learn how to move forward with control projects – what regulatory processes might be required, how to find assistance and identify possible funding opportunities, and what nearby community or watershed projects exist to join for results that go beyond a single property’s boundaries.
Register soon and save $5! The early bird fee is $15. Workshops will be $20 at the door.
The workshops are organized by Watershed Action Alliance of Southeastern Massachusetts, a coalition of ten watershed and two pond associations, which works to advocate and educate for healthy watersheds and clean, plentiful, and free-flowing water.
Sponsors include Island Foundation, North and South Rivers Watershed Association, Jones River Watershed Association, Six Ponds Improvement Association, Save the Bay – Narragansett Bay, The Gulf Association, Inc., Weir River Watershed Association and Herring Ponds Watershed Association.
The April 1 workshop was hosted by the Town of Plymouth Open Space Committee.
