Invasive Plant Management in Maine
Saturday, August 25
Sewall Woods Preserve in Bath
Join Nancy Olmstead from the Maine Natural Areas Program (MNAP) to learn about the community and statewide invasive plant management and mapping efforts. She will also share additional information on identifying more invasive plants. The program will last about 2 hours.
KELT and others are trying to pare back the invasives littering the area. 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 email@example.com or call 207-442-8400.
Don't miss the last program on invasive plants that will be held later this summer! A program on September 16th will demonstrate methods that can be used to treat invasive plants using manual or chemical means. This last program will have individual presentations geared towards landowners and land managers.
