Invasive Plants: Management and Case Studies
November 17 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Join Amanda Devine, Regional Steward Manager for Maine Coast Heritage Trust, and Portland City Arborist Jeff Tarling to discuss and learn about the important tools, prevention strategies, and resources needed for dealing with invasive plants in constructed and natural areas. As project sites are connected to the surrounding environment when it comes to invasive plants, emphasis will be on actionable ways—the methods and measures—landscape professionals can make a difference for their clients and their communities.
In partnership with the Maine Landscape and Nursery Association, Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens presents the Green Spotlight Series, featuring local and national green industry researchers, instructors, and field professionals discussing topics valuable to peer professionals. The variety of topics on offer are geared towards a diverse range of landscape-related professionals, from nursery and flower farmers to arborists, landscapers, gardeners, and landscape designers/architects. MELNA members are eligible for the CMBG member price and will earn recertification credits; several sessions will count toward the State of Maine’s pesticide license recertification. Please inquire regarding credit approval for all other network agencies.
