Participants must proviede their own roasting sticks.

Invasive Walk & Talk

Invasive plants suppress biodiversity, and a decrease in biodiversity is one of the biggest challenges we’re facing on the planet! You can do your part by identifying and safely removing the invasive plants in your own backyard. Walk with naturalist Veronica Swain who will talk about how to identify invasives, the tools needed for their removal, and how to remove them without the use of chemicals.
