Managing Your Land: Invasive Species
Saturday, May 18, 2019
9:30am - 3:30pm
33 Clearpool Road, Carmel, NY 10512
Ever notice a strange vine growing in your backyard, plants appearing along your hillside or other newcomers to your property? Though they may seem harmless, these plant invaders may negatively impact our communities, forests and water bodies. They can decrease our enjoyment of nature, increase our cost of living and even put our health at risk.
As a landowner, it can be overwhelming to think about starting a management project. You may not know what options are available, how much it will cost or whether the species you’re looking at is harmful in the first place.
In this workshop we will walk you through the steps of managing invasives by exploring:
- common species in the Lower Hudson
- how to survey invasives and map out a management site
- how to remove these harmful species
This workshop is split between indoor and outdoor experiential learning.
CFE credits will be provided by the Society of American Foresters for attendance to this workshop.
A $25 workshop fee includes morning refreshments and catered lunch. Advance registration is required no later than Thursday, May 16.
