Invasive plant walk set for Sept. 12

Sep 03, 2019
Two local nonprofits sponsor an invasive plant walk Sept. 12.

Rockland — Georges River Land Trust and the Knox-Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District will co-sponsor a walk to identify and discuss native and invasive plants Thursday, Sept. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon at the Ash Point Preserve in Owls Head. The walk will help people to identify the most common and emerging invasive plants and provide recommendations on how to remove and dispose of them.

The trip leader will be Rebecca Jacobs, program manager for KLSWCD. Jacobs works with landowners to perform field identification and assessment of invasive plant infestations and make recommendations for infestation management. The KLSWCD website provides resources for management of invasive species.

This event is free and open to the public. Participants should meet at the Ash Point Preserve parking lot at 10 a.m. Sturdy footwear is recommended for this 1-mile round-trip walk out to the shore. For more information, visit georgesriver.org or phone 594-5166.
