About Invasive Plant Species Management & Native Plant Restoration Virtual Lecture
Join The Trustees, wetland scientist Michael DeRosa and master gardener Catherine Carney-Felman, for a virtual lecture all about invasive plant species management and native plant restoration.
Using the foundation of works by Dr. Douglas Tallamy (Bringing Nature Home, Nature’s Best Hope, The Nature of Oaks) we will discuss the importance of identifying and managing invasive plant species in our own yards and re-establishment of native species in a collective effort to restore the caterpillar and insect populations that form the basis of our interconnected food webs. We will also discuss some invasive plant removal and management techniques and consider native plants that we can all use to form the important plant communities that can be easily incorporated in our home and neighborhood landscapes.
Virtual lecture attendees are welcome to a complimentary tour of our wetlands gardens at Stevens-Coolidge House & Gardens on .
