Learn to identify invasive plants with KELT
Saturday July 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
KELT and the Androscoggin Valley Soil and Water Conservation District are partnering to hold three free educational workshops focused on invasive plant management. These programs will provide residents and property managers across the region with information to support identifying, managing and eradicating the harmful plants.
The first program is July 14th at 10am. Join Cheri Brunault at Butler Head Preserve in Bath for an introduction to invasive plant identification. Cheri will introduce participants to a number of invasive plants that can be found in local forests and fields. She will also share information about some of the methods KELT is using to manage these plants. This is a light rain or shine event and registration is strongly encouraged at www.kennebecestuary.org or 207-442-8400.
The other two programs will be held later this summer. A program on August 25th will focus on statewide invasive plant monitoring and management efforts, and a program on September 16th will demonstrate methods that can be used to treat invasive plants using manual or chemical means.
