Non-Native/Invasive Plant Removal 101

May 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Free

Join us for this two-part series to learn about non-native, invasive plants and how they are threatening our native landscapes.

Participants will learn how to identify and control species of non-native, invasive plants found in the Washington, D.C. area including porcelainberry (Ampelopsis glandulosa), Japanese stiltgrass (Microstegium vimineum) and mile-a-minute (Persicaria perfoliata). Native alternatives to common and incoming invasive plants will also be discussed. Utilize these identification and removal skills to clear landscapes and make room for more trees!

The course consists of two parts on two different days: a 2.5 hour classroom session on May 1 at a location to be announced, followed by a 2.5-hour field session (Saturday, May 4th from 9:00am-11:30am) at Rock Creek Park. Where to meet in Rock Creek Park will be announced closer to the event.

Registering for the classroom session will automatically enroll you in the field session as well.
