Controlling forest invasives talk

From Pat Curran:

The Finger Lakes Native Plant Society presents a slide show and talk by Charlotte Acharya of Cornell Dept of Natural Resources on Controlling Forest Invasive Plants: Linking Management Practices with Outcomes.

A diverse group of organizations are performing invasive plant control. Charlotte surveyed the leaders of these organizations to discover what management strategies were being used and if their management had resulted in prevention of new species establishment, invasive species population reductions or protection of native plants. The lessons are applicable to small areas as well as large.

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009, 7:00 to 8:30 PM at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, 615 Willow Ave., Ithaca.
