Managing invasive plants on woodlots, public lands, and other large landscapes

This program will highlight the manual and herbicide treatment methods that are best for a variety of invasive plants.  Participants will be introduced to these plants and will have a chance to try these methods.  The program will also provide guidance on landscape-scale invasive plant mapping as well as information about managing volunteers on invasive management projects and grant resources that are available for this work.

KELT and the Androscoggin Valley Soil and Water Conservation District are partnering to hold three free educational workshops focused on invasive plant management. These programs will provide residents and property managers across the region with information to support identifying, managing and eradicating the harmful plants.  

This is a light rain or shine event and registration is strongly encouraged at www.kennebecestuary.org, using the form below. For more information, contact Ruth at rindrick@kennebecestuary.org or call 207-442-8400.
