“Identifying and Controlling Invasive Plants” program offered to woodland owners in SE Ohio at the Vinton Furnace State Forest on Friday, July 12th

Posted on June 25, 2013



Can you name this plant?

Are you seeing new plants encroaching on your woodland property in southeastern Ohio but don’t know what they are? Do you already know about invasive plants but don’t know how to control them? The program “Identifying and Controlling Invasive Plants” will take place at the Vinton Furnace State Forest, near McArthur, on July 12 from 9 am to 3:30 pm.

This landowner program is designed to help them learn how to identify and control common invasive plants in their woodlands. Throughout the day there will be opportunities to visit sites outdoors with invasive plant specialists to see these plants and see demonstrations of various control techniques.

“Identifying and Controlling Invasive Plants” and the “2nd Friday Series” are sponsored by the Education and Demonstration Subcommittee of the Vinton Furnace State Experimental Forest with support from the ODNR-divisions of Forestry and Wildlife, US Forest Service, Vinton County Soil and Water Conservation District, Ohio State University Extension, US Fish and Wildlife Service, National Wild Turkey Federation, Hocking College, and Glatfelter.

A registration fee of $10 will include lunch and program materials. Participants can bring in samples of invasive plants contained in a plastic bag for a specialist to identify.
