We would like to thank the Kirby Endowment through the Polk County Community
Foundation for helping to make the invasive plant removal project
happen.Exotic invasive species, originally planted as ornamental plants in gardens, often escape into native habitats causing havoc. Invasive plant species often choke out native species and decrease biodiversity.
It is important to identify which plants are considered invasive and harmful to the environment, so informed decisions can be made when planting home gardens. Participants will learn which native plants can be substituted for exotic species, so that homeowners and nature can live in harmony.
