Stop The Alien (Plant) Invasion - Free Information On Non-Chemical Plant Management

posted Friday, November 1, 2019

STOP THE ALIEN (PLANT) INVASION! Free information on mechanical (non-chemical) management of many of the more noxious plants overtaking our woods, field, riverbanks, and backyards.

Property values, human health, quality of life, flood resiliency, water quality, ecological stability, and economic strength are all threatened by problem plants that run rampant in our communities. We all suffer when aggressive plants choke out forest canopies, invade forests and roadsides, monopolizing river banks, fields, backyards, and farms. Don't panic! Mike Bald of Got Weeds? has words of wisdom to keep us from feeling discouraged or helpless. No need to resort to herbicides - come to the Springfield Town Library at 43 Main Street in Springfield VT on Wed, November 20 from 6 - 8 PM to learn what Mike recommends for dealing with some of the most notorious weeds out there. He brings nearly two decades of experience to bear on this "elephant in the room" topic, and touches on some of the ways towns across the region can and should be communicating and collaborating to manage this growing problem - pun very much intended.

This free and accessible program is sponsored by the Springfield Town Library and the Black River Action Team. Contact BRAT Director Kelly Stettner with questions about the presentation. (802) 738-0456 or [email protected]
