Managing Invasive Plants Certificate in Native Plants

Certificate in Native Plants Elective: Managing Invasive Plants
$50 Registration Fee
Whether you are managing your home garden, a public outdoor center or natural ecosystems, you will need to deal with invasive plants. Once you have learned to identify these plants, it is a challenge to decide which plants to target with limited time and resources. Management considerations include general strategies for early detection, treatment and post-treatment monitoring. Strategies for targeting individual species depend on the ecosystem, the plant growth and behavior, the phenology of flowering and fruiting, as well as weather and environmental considerations. Bring your own concerns about problem species to the course (along with a list of native species present) so you can develop your own action plan. Please note that this class is part of a new program and is located outside of the Athens area.
