Join OSGF’s Arboriculture, Conservation and Landscapes (ACL) team to learn basic theory and techniques of managing invasive plant species.
Overview: This workshop will be led by Oak Spring Garden Foundation (OSGF) staff members Curtis Wurth and Clif Brown. Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of several treatment methods for managing invasive plant species.
Following an introductory session about tools and treatments, participants will gain some hands-on experience identifying and learning treatment application methods out on the landscape. Topics to be covered will include: the identification of common invasive plant species, the timing and practical application of available treatment methods and other issues related to the management of current and potential future invasive plant species.
PLEASE NOTE: Do NOT bring your own pruning tools or any plant material.
What to Expect: Participants can expect to walk about 2 miles over uneven terrain. Sturdy walking shoes or boots as well as proper outdoor clothing are required. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided to all participants.
This event will take place on the Rokeby Farm portion of OSGF and will not include a tour of the library, formal garden, or main residence.
