Topic: Does it matter where a plant grows as long as it’s green? You might find the answer surprising in this discussion of invasive plant species and the damage they do to our local ecosystems. Some of the killers on our pathways and in green spaces degrade and destroy valuable native species. Air potato vine, Japanese climbing fern, nandina, privet… the list goes on. Learn about the worst, and ways to take action starting in your own landscape and helping on pathways through the collaborative efforts of local organizations
Speaker: Teri MacArthur serves the community in her role as Volunteer Coordinator and Water Conservation Specialist with The Woodlands Township Environmental Services Department, and is a Lifetime member of The Woodlands G.R.E.E.N., as well as a Texas Master Naturalist in the Heartwood Chapter, and Native Plant Society of Texas – Pines and Prairies Chapter member.
