Non-native invasive plants threaten the natural diversity and beauty of northern Michigan. Managing invasive species becomes prohibitively costly as an infestation grows. To minimize these costs, many land managers such as LTC are attempting to detect infestations early on. But we need more people to help us patrol for these situations. If you have an interest in plants and would like to know how to identify and map invasive plants on LTC preserves, join us on April 11 when LTC’s Derek Shiels will lead a class on terrestrial invasive species management. Come at 10:30am for the kickoff of our new EcoSteward volunteer program (above left) and stay for lunch. Training will start at 1 pm and run roughly two hours.
