APCC to Host Spring Lectures

DENNIS – Temperatures are beginning to climb on Cape Cod and the Association to Preserve Cape Cod is celebrating its 50th anniversary with several spring lectures.

On Sunday, residents can find out what to do with weeds and invasive species at 1 p.m. at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster.

Mike Bald of “Got Weeds?” has years of experience fighting non-native invasive species. He will share how he uses manual and non-synthetic control methods to eliminate, contain and suppress unwanted plants.

A rain garden workshop will be held Wednesday at the Eastham Public Library from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m.

The landscape around the library was designed with rain gardens and other eco-friendly design features to limit impacts on the environment. The workshop will teach attendees how these stormwater systems work and how to maintain them.

And world renowned naturalist, author and lecturer Peter Alden will discuss the Cape’s changing landscape Sunday, May 20 at 1 p.m. at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History.

“The Changes in the Bird and Mammal Life of Cape Cod” will focus on wildlife and upland woods, fields, farms and forests.

The events are free and interested individuals can register at apcc.org.
