July 1, 2013, 7:00pm - Invasive Ornamental Plants
Cathy McGlynn, Coordinator, Northeast Illinois Invasive Plant Partnership
Invasive plants have considerable economic and ecological impacts throughout the northeast Illinois region. Many of these plants were brought here to beautify gardens and then escaped to natural areas. Cathy will briefly discuss how plants escape and the laws and regulations regarding the sale and distribution of plants that are known to be invasive in northeast Illinois or neighboring regions. Information about known, and potential, invasive ornamentals and native alternatives will be provided.
PowerPoint presentation - hand outs.
