Invasive plant species are highly detrimental to natural plant communities, and their presence must be taken into consideration when designing a space or preparing for a landscape installation.  In this workshop we’ll describe invasive plant species that are most problematic; explain various methods for controlling them; show site characteristics that encourage the growth of invasives; and demonstrate the thought-process needed to troubleshoot invasive species in a case study area.  The training includes classroom instruction, an outdoor field activity, and a short design exercise that will be used to provide basic recommendations to the property owners.

This workshop is organized by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries Habitat Partners, and is designed for landscape professionals, but is open to all who seek a better understanding of managing invasive plant species.
