MOULTONBOROUGH: The Moultonborough Conservation Commission and the Moultonborough Heritage Commission will host Wendy Scribner, Carroll County Forester, UNH Cooperative Extension, for a special workshop on ‘Non-Native Plant Species: Identification and Control’ on Saturday, September 9th from 9 AM to 12 noon.

Chances are you drive by them every day, and maybe you even wrestle with them in your own backyard. Non-native, invasive plant species such as Oriental Bittersweet, Japanese Knotweed, and Glossy Buckthorn have become well established in our landscape. Invasive plants pose a serious threat to the environment, and can impact native wildlife. There are ways to control these species and even eradicate them from your property.

Wendy Scribner will lead a discussion on identifying invasive plants and demonstrate removal methods. We will be meeting at the historic Long Island Inn located at 76 Old Long Island Road in Moultonborough. Over the past few years, the landowners have worked to control the invasive plants that are threatening to overtake this local property.

This is free to the public and all are welcome to attend. Pre-registration is not required; however, if you plan to come, please call 603-476-8446 so we can add you to our list, since we want to make sure to have enough handouts. For more information, contact Wendy Scribner or Betty Lou Canty, UNH Cooperative Extension, at 603-447-3834.
