All About Invasive Plants in MA (#BeOnlineWithAMC)

In support of the national effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to minimize the risks to the most vulnerable among us, AMC will immediately begin the process of temporarily closing all lodging and foodservice facilities and suspending all in-person staff and volunteer led programming through June 3.

Trip dates: Thursday, May 14, 2020 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Invasive plants are one of the greatest threats to the nature of Massachusetts because they out-compete, displace, or kill native species. These non-native species -- many introduced to Massachusetts accidentally or on purpose for garden or landscape use -- thrive and proliferate. Join Michele Grzenda, YM Leader and Naturalist to learn about 12 common invasive plants in the greater boston area. Michele will also review what you can do to help reduce the spread of invasives. Once Covid-19 is a thing of the past, many organizations are looking for volunteers to help pull invasives - this slide show will get you excited to battle the invasive species invasion!!
