“Invasive Species” will cover the basics of how to manage invasive and aggressive organisms in your garden and will include a review of the origins of invasive species, how they became invasive, why they are uniquely destructive, and examples of common invasive species in the Hudson Valley. We will discuss the role people have had on the introduction of invasive species and what we can each do to manage them in our own communities and on a larger scale. This class is intended for beginner environmentalists and gardeners who are new to the study of invasive species, however people of all levels of skill and knowledge are welcome. “Invasive Species” is also oriented towards adults, however children are invited to attend if they are interested or are otherwise able to occupy themselves. Class will be taught in English, is free of charge and wheelchair accessible, and will last 30 to 60 minutes. This class is weather dependent.
