Webinar: Managing Invasive Species and Overgrown Landscapes with Goats
December 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
We hope you will join us for a presentation about managing the fast-growing, pervasive, and invasive Japanese Knotweed. Japanese Knotweed is commonly found along streams and rivers, in low-lying areas, and in disturbed areas such as rights-of-way. It often creates monoculture stands that threaten native plant communities. It is notoriously difficult to manage and get rid of!
Join POWR and your watershed organization colleagues for a presentation on one method that was used to control knotweed in a local park: GOATS! During the webinar, you will learn how this approach was was selected, planned, and implemented, how the community and key partners worked together, and what the short and long-term outcomes have been, and what it all cost. Our presenters will also share some key lessons learned, in case you want to consider a similar effort in your watershed!
This free webinar, presented by staff and volunteers of the Shenango River Watchers and the Sharon Beautification Commission, will also include plenty of time for conversations and questions.
Register today to make sure you get the Zoom link.
