Understand invasive plants!!! PLEASE!!!!

Now, I told folks that I was going to refrain from promoting programs, but this one is VERY IMPORTANT and one that I feel strongly about. It will be taught by my former professor and advisor, Dr. Sarah Reichard, fellow garden writer and friend, Marty Wingate, and my colleague Dr. Lizbeth Seebacher.

I totally plan on attending and I hope you consider it. Yes, it's $25 dollars, but you will be lectured by THE AUTHORITY of invasive plants. You will get both sides of the story (scientists vs. avid gardeners) and be well informed when you leave!

Be Garden Wise, Linking Horticulture and Plant Invasions
Thursday, 6/18, 6 – 9pm
Location: Center for Urban Horticulture
3501 NE 41st St
Seattle, WA 98105

Douglas Classroom, Center for Urban Horticulture
Instructors: Dr. Sarah Reichard, Marty Wingate and Dr. Lizbeth Seebacher
Fee: $25

Some plants may look beautiful, but non-native plants can have a devastating effect on your garden and the biodiversity of surrounding natural areas. Come learn about invasive plant identification, impacts, pathways, control and alternatives from the region's horticultural experts. Learn what you can do to stop the invasion. Look foward to a panel discussion with the speakers and Master Cardeners at the tail end of the workshop. Two or our experts will also have their books available for signing.

To register, contact Lizbeth Seebacher at lizbetha@u.washington.edu OR download the registration form from www.pnw-ipc.org and mail the form in with a check.

See you there!
