Invasive Species Removal – Buckthorn


Wednesday, May 8, 2019
9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Meet at Lamb’s Inn

Join us and help rare remove invasive species! Common Buckthorn was introduced to Canada to be used in hedgerows and windbreaks. It causes harm to the economy and the environment by out-competing native plants, reducing biodiversity, degrading the quality of wildlife habitat and can hosting oat crown rust and soybean aphids, both of which reduce crop yields. It is effective at spreading since it is a laxative to wildlife and can grow in a wide range of habitats.

Identification of invasive species training will be provided on site as well as instruction on proper removal techniques. This is a great opportunity for those looking to gain in field experience with ecological restoration and become more familiar with flora of southern Ontario.

Cost: This event is FREE
