Managing Invasive Plants on Your Property
At this program, manual methods and herbicide methods for removing invasive plants will be demonstrated, and attendees will have a chance to try them out. From barberry to bittersweet, different methods work better for different types of plants. KELT's Stewardship Coordinator, Cheri Brunault, and Bath's City Forester, Kyle Rosenberg, will introduce the plants and highlight which methods work best for which plants..
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.
