Creating a wildlife-friendly yard entails making space for native species, and that means removing introduced plants. If you find yourself asking, “Which plants are introduced?” or “How do I remove non-native ‘problem’ plants?”, this beginner level class is for you. Using examples from the Nature Center’s gardens and grounds, Natural Areas Manager Olivia Espinoza will provide tips and tricks for battling aggressive plants.
