Spread the Word-Not the Weeds; Post-Museum Fire Treatment of Invasive Plants

Posted on by

Thursday March 5, at 6pm at the Montoya Center

A look at the cooperative project headed by the Arboretum and including the City, County, Museum, Natural Channel Design and private land owners.

Presented by Jan Busco, horticulturist, native plant expert and author

Jan has worked with native plants for more than three decades and is the curator of MNA’s gardens and grounds. She has written three books on western native plants including Native Plants for High-Elevation Western Gardens (Fulcrum Press 2010, 2004). This talk will be about a grant she received to prevent the spread of non-native invasive weeds on the watershed of the Rio de Flag adjacent to the Museum Fire. There will be opportunities to learn how to prevent the spread of invasive weeds and to participate in citizen science.
