Invasives 101: How to Identify and Combat Invasive Plants

Submitted by Gail Reynolds

(June 21, 2022) —- Bring a bagged lunch and join us as UConn Master Gardener Coordinator, Gail K. Reynolds, M.F.S. from UConn Extension, gives a lunchtime talk on how to identify and combat invasive plants. The event will be held on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 from Noon to 2:00 p.m. at the Deep River Public Library.

Invasive plants are in the news.  If you would like to learn about what makes a plant invasive in Connecticut, how invasive plants damage Connecticut ecosystems, including the one in your backyard, and what you can do to identify and manage invasive plants, this talk is for you!  We will discuss this and have samples of invasive plants available and will take a short invasive plant walk at the library.

This program is sponsored by Deep River Sustainable and Deep River Garden Club. Registration is required for this program. To register, call 860-526-6039 or email
