Invasive Plant Workshop


Distant Hill Gardens
507 March Hill Road
Walpole, NH 03608
United States

Many non-native plants in the U.S. have become problematic invaders of native and managed ecosystems. With climate change, a new wave of invasive species may be at our doorstep. This workshop will discuss what makes plants invasive, and look at many of the current invasive plants in the Northeast, along with some common plants that have the potential to become invasive in the not too distant future.

Join UNH Extension foresters Mike Gagnon and Matt Kelly to learn about the various issues, characteristics, identifying features, and control measures of some of the most aggressive non-native plants found in New England.

This workshop will help you to:

  • Identify invasive species in your neighborhood
  • Understand how they got here and how they impact our environment
  • Learn how to control their spread and preserve native plants

Whether you're a gardening enthusiast, nature lover, or simply curious about invasive plants, this workshop is perfect for you.

Space is limited.  Registration is required.
