Invasive Weed Control Field Practicum - Mount Vernon
Invasive weeds not only inhibit the growth of or even kill your trees, they cause significant ecological harm by taking over ecosystems, crowding out native species, degrading wildlife habitat, and increasing erosion. Controlling these noxious invaders is a challenging but essential task for landowners. At this field practicums, you will learn to identify and control some of the most common invasive weeds that cause economic and environmental damage in forests, such as: holly, ivy, blackberries, knotweed, reed canary grass, butterfly bush, Scotch broom, and more. The practicum will cover both chemical and non-chemical control options. This practicum is completely field-based and centered around hands-on learning.
