In 2018 it was estimated that Invasive Species cost Ontario municipalities and conservation authorities $38.8M. This workshop will look at some of the top offending plant species in Southern and Central Ontario that contributed to that amount. You will be introduced to Best Management Practices (BMP) to help you develop a control strategy for each invasive plant discussed. As well, you will develop identification skills to help correctly identify these invasive species, understand their toxic properties, and the impacts they have on native landscapes.

This half day workshop will cover:

  • Giant Hogweed 
  • Wild Parsnip 
  • Common Buckthorn 
  • Garlic Mustard 
  • Phragmites
  • Dog Strangling Vine
