BANGOR – Have you ever wondered what invasive plants may be lurking in or on the edge of your yard? Plants that probably shouldn’t even be there, but you are not aware of their presence? Attend Bangor Land Trust’s Invasive Species program on Thursday, Jan. 23.
Steve Sader, UMaine’s School of Forest Resources forest vegetation ID instructor, will discuss invasive woody species common to the Bangor area. Sader will show slides and discuss the history and background of how these species were introduced and became invasive. He will also have dry mounted samples of most of the species discussed. You will learn to recognize common invaders such as burning bush, barberry, Norway maple and honeysuckle.
