Saturday, October 12, 10:00 am – 12:00 noon – Invasive Plants: What Are They and What Can Be Done?

The Ecological Landscaping Association will present a free educational event at Cold Spring Park, 1200 Beacon Street in Newton, on Saturday, October 12, from 10 – noon, with Bruce Wenning, a horticulturist at The Country Club, Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, where he is responsible for garden management and design, invasive species management, and natural history of the grounds.  Invasive plant species damage the lands and waters that native plants and animals need to survive.  During visits to Cold Spring Park, Bruce discovered that several types of invasive plants are present and spreading along the trails.  Learn how to identify several types of invasive plants and learn what you can do in your own landscape to safely remove them.  Register by calling 617-436-5838, or email
