How to Fight Plants with Plants; Chemical-free methods for removing invasives

Thank you for your interest! Registration for this event is filled. We hope you will join us at our Annual Conference on February 23rd to hear Nancy Lawson present "The Humane Gardener: Nurturing Habitat for Wildlife"

Join WSA for a lecture with Nancy Lawson, author of the Humane Gardener.

You’ve decided to start a native plant garden for the good of the animals and the environment. Great move! But there’s just one problem: You’re staring down an expansive lawn replete with sprouting Bradford pears, Japanese stiltgrass, and other invasive species. How can you remove these plants that harm wildlife and their habitats while also nurturing valuable species that are dormant in the seedbank, just waiting to escape the mower and sprout? What methods can you use to ensure you’re not hurting local fauna in the process? Learn how to go native without the use of chemicals—and without overwhelming yourself—through innovative, humane, and sustainable planting and cultivation strategies.
