Join us as we learn from Walter Bland and work to beat all of our unwanted plants. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, January 10th at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
Weeds and How to Beat them! We will take a look at some of the most common non-native (and native) weeds in the south and discuss the best strategies to deal with them. We will review safe and effective use of herbicides and integrated pest management techniques. We will discuss the risks and benefits of using chemicals for vegetation management.
Walter Bland is the managing partner of Rock Spring Restorations, a leading habitat restoration service provider in the southeast. He provides invasive species control, vegetation management, native seed collection and plant propagation services to government and private green-space managers in the region.
Due to renovations at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens, our programs will take place in Mershon Hall (directly across from Day Hall) until further notice. Our social hour will begin at 6:00 pm, announcements at 6:45 pm and the program will start at 7 o’clock pm.
