SEPTEMBER 4; 6PM: Invasive Plants and the Alternatives for Your Landscape. World travel and trade have been the catalyst for the unintentional introduction of unwanted invasive species of plants, insects and diseases for hundreds of years. Shipping pallets and crates, luggage, the ballast water of boats and tire treads are a few of the vehicles that have led to the spread. “Some plant species were introduced intentionally for use in landscaping. Little did our ancestors know that the transport of plant seeds, roots and stems would become an environmental problem for Sullivan County in the future,” said Diana K Weiner, Sullivan Renaissance Horticulture Program Manager, who will lead the seminar. Learn what plants to avoid and which can be used as alternatives. Free Seminar - everyone is welcome to attend. Registration is suggested. Seating is limited.
