Plant Invaders Workshop

Recurring event see all

February 29, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The March 21 Plant Invaders Workshop is cancelled. Please check back for information on future dates for this class.

Instructor: Jennifer Davidson, HBG Horticulture Specialist

The Plant Invaders project is a Huntsville Botanical Garden educational outreach effort to inform members, visitors, volunteers, and staff about locally problematic invasive plant species identification and current best methods of control. HBG has identified six invasive plant species that are particularly problematic in the Garden and the surrounding areas. Each workshop will have a presentation and a field component that will give attendees to practice what they learn. Our goal is to help you identify invasive plants and learn how to eradicate them from your property and control their spread.

Please dress for the weather and wear sturdy closed-toe shoes. Remember, mosquitoes and ticks are starting to wake up from their winter snoozes, so wear your long sleeves and pants. Tools, gloves, eye protection, and insect repellent will be provided; however, you are welcome to bring your own equipment.

Each class is a stand-alone course:
