Are Invasive Plants Attacking Your Property? These devilish, non-native plants can be relentless when growing on your property be it private or public land. Join Friends of Euclid Creek for our first January program "Removing Invasive Plants - a Primer for Yards, Parklands, and Watersheds in Northeast Ohio" by John Barber, Tuesday, January 19, 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.
This is an illustrated talk on identifying, removing, and disposing of many of the most common species including a review of techniques, tips, and best practices. John will also discuss replacing invasives with native trees, shrubs, and flowering plants, which can provide food for insects and birds, increase biodiversity, and restock the seed bank with native species' seeds. Since what we plant in our yards moves into parklands and watersheds, the ideas presented here will apply to all habitats. Register for the program at friendsofeuclidcreek.com by Jan. 17.
John Barber served on the board of the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes for ten years, including two terms as Board President. He now serves on the board of the Native Plant Trust.
