ZOOM VIRTUAL CLASS: Managing Invasive Plant Species on Your Landscape

  • Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Multiflora rose, garlic mustard, Norway maple, bush honeysuckle. These are a few of the exotic invasive plants that can take over an area of your yard, your neighbors' yards, or to local green spaces where they will displace other plants. Hilary Mosher from Finger Lakes PRISM will help you learn to identify common and priority invasive plant species in your yard and community, and the best methods of managing them.

"Invasive species pose new and ever greater challenges to the native plant and animal communities that form the rich, diverse ecosystems of our bioregion."

This class is taught by Hilary Mosher, the Coordinator for the Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (FL-PRISM) at the Finger Lakes Institute at Hobart and William Smith Colleges where she is committed to working with local, state, regional, and federal agencies, NGOs, private enterprise, academic institutions, citizens, and others to help coordinate invasive species efforts on behalf of seventeen NY counties of the Finger Lakes.
