CAMDEN – Join the Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District (KLSWCD) on Thursday, June 16 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. at the Merryspring Nature Center in Camden for a walk to identify invasive plant species and effective methods to discuss ways to mitigate the invasive plants and review tips to promote healthy wildlife habitat. Louisa Crane, program coordinator at KLSWCD, led efforts in phase two of the invasive plant management plan at Merryspring in 2021.
This event is the third in this year’s Conservation Landscape Certification (CLC) information series. Control of invasive species is the third core criterion of the CLC program, created by the Waldo Soil & Water Conservation District and later joined by Knox-Lincoln SWCD in 2021 to expand the program to Knox and Lincoln counties. This newly developed CLC program guides property owners on conservation practices that need to be implemented systematically.
This event is free; However, registration is required for personal participation (maximum 15). To register for the Walk ‘n Talk on Invasive Plant Species, please visit https://www.knox-lincoln.org/events-workshops/invasive-plants.
