invasive species
June 4th: Ask an Expert – Invasive Species
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm ET
With spring upon us and summer coming soon, many invasive plants begin to leaf out and spread in local woodland areas. Now is the time to stop them in their tracks so they don’t overtake native plants, affect water availability or damage the quality of soil among other potential impacts. Hosted by Lenny Farlee, sustainable hardwood extension specialist, and Liz Jackson, Walnut Council and IFWOA executive director and HTIRC engagement specialist.
