Invasive Shrub Workshop

Invasive Shrub Workshop

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011
9:00 am – 12:00 pm / Arboretum Office (710 Three Oaks Drive) and Lower Arboretum

Interested in improving wildlife habitat and reducing erosion and runoff from your land?  Learn why buckthorn, honeysuckle and other non-native invasive shrubs are a problem for our native forests and grasslands and what you can do about it.  A range of control methods will be discussed and demonstrated.  Join the Rice County Soil and Water Conservation District and the Carleton College Cowling Arboretum for this half day workshop. This program is free and open to the public but space is limited and registration is required. Register for the workshop now.
