Collin County Chapter – Native Plant Alternatives to Invasives

Our March 5th chapter meeting will include a presentation by Deedy Wright on “I’m Being Invaded! What Can I Do?”. Her talk will define the term “invasive” and discuss reasons for how and why these plants are here, and the damage they do to our environment. In addition, eco-region-specific native “alterNatives” are suggested for some of the more common invasive plants. Our program opens at 6:30, and at 7:00, Rodney Thomas, chapter president, will have a short chapter update, followed by the presentation.
