Interested in learning about using native plants in landscaping and how to avoid losing them to deer browse? This class is just the thing for you. Monroe County Identify & Reduce Invasive Species (MC-IRIS) experts will teach you to identify many of the invasive plants in our county and how to use deer-resistant native plants in landscaping. After the talk there will be a one-hour hands-on workshop on methods to control invasive plants. Attendees will be controlling invasive plants and should wear long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and sturdy closed shoes.
