Sudbury: Invasive plant species discussion

January 23, 2013

| Free

Friends of the Assabet River NWR will host Dealing with Invasive Plant Species in New England? with Douglas Cygan Jan. 23, starting at 7 p.m. The Visitor Center of Assabet River NWR is located at 680 Hudson Rd., Sudbury. You'se seen them – along roadsides, bordering streams and wetlands, and even in your own back yard. Many non-native invasive plant species are pretty, grow easily and spread rapidly. They are pervasive throughout New England – and that's the problem. Invasive species overwhelm and crowd out native plants, reduce wildlife habitat, impact water quality, and decrease diversity in natural plant communities. Learn how to identify invasive species in your neighborhood, understand how they got there and how they impact our environment, and learn how to control their spread. Douglas Cygan has been the Invasive Species Coordinator for the NH Department of Agriculture for the past 10-years as well as being a nursery inspector and an Authorized Certification Official for the USDA. Free and open to the general public. For more information, visit http://farnwr.org.
