Invasive Plants: Spot Them Early to Control Them Quickly

Stop Invasive Plants

This webinar is part of CVC’s month-long Nature Invaders Invasive Species Scavenger Hunt–an interactive citizen science project to help rural and urban landowners stop the spread of invasive species on their properties and in their communities. Learn more about the Scavenger Hunt and how to participate here.

Join CVC’s stewardship team and invasive species experts for this free webinar where you’ll learn how to identify the most common invasive plants in the watershed, how they spread, and techniques for controlling and removing them. Bring your questions or submit them in advance during registration. A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation.

Invasive plants are aggressive, non-native plants that can take over your yard and garden and affect the environmental health of your community. Spotting them early and acting fast to control and remove them can protect your property from infestations and help you avoid time consuming and costly removal.

Don’t forget to join us for the Scavenger Hunt or to register for our second webinar Top Invasive Insects in the Credit River Watershed.

As a community, we have the responsibility to honour, care for and respect all the Creation gives to provide us with life. This includes the land, water, air, fire, animals, plants and our ancestors.

The Anishinabek Peoples have utilized this land for millennia and we would like to acknowledge their direct descendants, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, as the rightful caretakers and titleholders of this land upon which we live, work and conduct ourselves. We acknowledge our treaty relationship and responsibilities to both the land and these original peoples.

We also recognize that this land is rich in pre-contact history and customs, which includes the Anishinabek and Haudenosaunee and since European contact, has and continues to become home for Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. And it is in the spirit and intent of the Dish With One Spoon, wampum agreement whereby we will collectively care for and respect the land, water, animals and each other in the interests of peace and friendship and for the benefit of not only ourselves but of our future descendants.
