Identifying and Managing Invasive Plants 

Invasive Species Talk!

Saturday, April 13
4:00PM

Invasive species have become a major environmental problem, as they out-compete and displace native vegetation and damage local habitats by reducing biodiversity. Attendees of the program will learn about the problems caused by invasive plants, as well as which species are invasive and how to identify and manage them in the landscape.  The top local invasive plant species will be covered, as well as where to report invasive species populations, and how to get involved in local volunteer projects.

Instructor Tim Kennelty is a Master Gardener and Master Naturalist through Cornell Cooperative Extension and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Columbia Land Conservancy. He has gardened in Columbia County for more than 25 years and has developed a passion for preserving native species and combating exotic invasive plants. He has been involved in a multi-year habitat restoration project at the Siegel-Kline Kill public conservation area in Ghent, New York.

Bring your questions; stay for refreshments.
