February 21 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
“We’re joining forces with Kentwood and West Michigan Conservation Network to host a free workshop and training to help you learn how to identify and treat non-native invasive plant species threatening the yards and parks in Kent County. These include Invasive Bittersweet, Buckthorn, and many more.
Participants will be trained on how to identify and effectively treat the various invasive species. Each participant will receive a dauber filled with herbicide to take home apply the cut stump technique to those invasive plants you have growing in your back yard or neighborhood. Summer and Fall into winter is best time to treat. Spring is the worst time to use a dauber or cut/stump technique. In the spring, the plant/tree/shrub is trying to grow so sap, etc is flowing. Beest to waiting until later in June.) Participants will be encourage to attend a spring training where instructors will be walking and identifying invasive plants in the field.
