Invasive Plant Workshop

last update: February 8, 2017

What is this Crazy Plant?

Join Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County for a free public workshop about identifying and managing invasive plants

Invasive plants are everywhere " in our forests, fields, roadsides, and even our yards and gardens. Invasive plants such as giant hogweed and wild parsnip can cause harm to our health, and others like swallowwort disrupt ecosystems and crowd out native plants. Invasive shrubs and vines compete with marketable tree species and reduce the economic value of woodlots and sugar bushes. Others such as honeysuckle and Japanese barberry are attractive additions to yards but wreak havoc when they get loose in natural areas. Prepare yourself with the information needed to identify and manage invasive plants. Join us for a free workshop on Tuesday February 14, 2017, from 10 am " noon at the Civil Defense Center in Bath, NY: 7220 State Rte. 54. The workshop is free but advanced registration by Monday, February 13 at 5 pm is requested; please contact Emily Staychock at or 315-536-5123 x4127. Please provide your contact information in the event that the workshop is cancelled due to bad weather.
