Ever notice a strange vine growing in your backyard, plants appearing along your hillside or other newcomers to your property? Though they may seem harmless, these invaders may negatively impact our communities, forests and water bodies. They can decrease our enjoyment of nature, increase our cost of living and even put our health at risk.
As a landowner, it can be overwhelming to begin a management project. You may not know what options are available, how much it will cost or whether the species you’re looking at is harmful in the first place.
Join Green Chimneys and the New York Forest Owners Association for Managing Your Land: Invasive Species on Saturday, May 18th from 9:30am-3:30pm. In this workshop we will walk you through the steps of managing invasives by discussing common species in the Lower Hudson, how to survey invasives and map out a management site and give you hands-on skills to remove these harmful species. CFE credits will be provided by the Society of American Foresters for attendance to this workshop.
This workshop is split between indoor and outdoor experiential learning. Cost of attendance is $25 and includes morning refreshments and catered lunch. Advanced registration is required and will close on Thursday, May 16th. Please reach out to Model Forest Facilitator Matt Smetana, with any questions at 845.216.0239 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This workshop is a partnership between Green Chimneys and the New York Forest Owners Association (NYFOA).
