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!!
