Harwich Conservation Trust Hosting Invasive Plant Species Talk

HARWICH – Any botany enthusiast will tell you just how much of an annoyance invasive plants can be in the garden. But, what about the local environment as a whole?

The Hariwch Conservation Trust (HCT), along with the Garden Club of Harwich and Blue Flax Design, is sponsoring an educational presentation focusing on the problems that invasive plant species are causing in our native ecosystems.

The presenters from HCT and Blue Flax Design will share life cycle facts and misconceptions about these plants as well as answer common questions.

Which species are the biggest ecological problems locally? Are there other potential invasive species of concern in the region? What can homeowners and property managers do to control the spread of invasive plants and ensure the survival of native species? Let the experts answer all of these question.

After the presentation, participants will have the option of joining a walk outside to learn to identify several plants within a short distance.

The presentation will be held at the Harwich Community Center from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on March 30.

The event is expected to be popular and the HCT recommends all interested parties to register ahead of time by sending an email to events@harwichconservationtrust.org.
