GREEN AND SUSTAINABLE WEBINAR SERIES: Invasive Plant Management
12:00 PM EST
This is a Webinar - on-line training about Invasive Plant Management
Natural areas and parks throughout Pennsylvania are impacted by invasive plants. Invasive plants can change community structure, composition, and ecosystem processes in ways that may not be anticipated or desireable. Active land management can minimize these negative impacts. Learn how your staff and volunteers can approach the problem of invasive plants.
Participants will be able to identify the threats posed by invasive plants; learn to develop goals, objectives, and strategies (not just "kill weeds"; know how to prioritize the management plans and best management practices and learn about DCNR's Invasive Plant Management Tutorial and how to use this reference for developing invasive plan management plans.
