Invasive Species Meet & Eat Classes, Part I

August 3 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Please join Heritage Conservancy for this landowner-exclusive three-part series on identifying, managing, and eating prominent invasive plant species found in eastern Pennsylvania. 

The United States East Coast has a higher concentration of non-native, invasive species than anywhere else in the country. These invaders pose severe challenges to conservation efforts by reducing overall biodiversity in the region and inhibiting forest regeneration in places where they are not managed.

Part I of the series will take place on Wednesday, August 3, 2022, from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM, and will feature Master Watershed Steward, Jim Walter, who will present on the ongoing invasive species management at Aldie Mansion in Doylestown.

This class is a great opportunity to: 

  1. Learn more about how you can improve the conservation value of your land
  2. Ask questions of local experts in land management
  3. Familiarize yourself with iMapInvasives and other plant identification/community science apps and tools
  4. Meet other landowners in the area facing challenges similar to yours
  5. Take home some free seed packets

Dinner will be provided. Vegan and gluten-free options will be available. Please inquire for more details.

This event is free of charge and exclusively available to landowners whose land is subject to a conservation easement held by Heritage Conservancy.

To register, please contact Katie Toner, Conservation Easement Steward, by emailing ktoner@heritageconservancy.org or calling 215-345-7020 ext. 106.

A special thank you to our event sponsor, PA American Water, and our event partner, Penn State Extension Master Watershed Stewards!
