Invasive Species Meet & Eat Classes, Part II

August 6 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

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 II of the series will take place on Saturday, August 6, 2022, from 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM.

Join Master Watershed Steward, Jim Walter, and Heritage Conservancy staff for a walk through Washington Crossing State Park in Washington Crossing, PA. Along the way, we will point out and educate attendees about common invasive species, why they cause problems, and what individuals can do to manage them on their property.

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. Meet other landowners in the area also dealing with invasive species management
  4. Enjoy a local park in a new way

Bagels, breakfast pastries and coffee will be served!

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!
