February's topic: New Invasives
We all know too well about buckthorn, Phragmites, and garlic mustard and what they do to our native habitats, but what are the newer SE Michigan invaders to be on the lookout for? Learn about wild parsnip, swallow-wort, Chinese yam, mile-a-minute, and other invasives that are only now starting to gain a toe-hold in our area. What are the key characteristics to identify them and how do you report and control them when seen?
