Invasive Plant Walking Tour

The North Country CISMA and AFFEW will host a walking tour in Cartier Park, and focus on identification of invasive plant species, recommended treatment methods and the benefits to native plant species. Participants will be able to partake in hands-on identification of plants, view past treatment areas and a native wildflower demonstration garden. Please bring a mask and plan on maintaining an appropriate distance from others on the tour. Those interested in joining are invited to bring a bag lunch and stick around after the walk for a dispersed picnic lunch (likely on the lawn around the gazebo!) and further discussion on invasives.
