With Mt. Cuba Center staff
This course meets on three days: Friday, May 5, Wednesday, August 2, and Friday, October 6
Non-native invasive plants are taking over our natural habitats and competing with native species for the same resources. Nate Shampine, Mt. Cuba Center's Natural Lands Manager, and staff will take you through the process of habitat restoration to improve ecosystem function. This hands-on, three-part series begins with the identification and removal of non-native plants in a specified area of our Natural Lands followed by a site maintenance and management segment and ending with preparing and planting the area using sound ecological practices. This workshop offers a unique opportunity to work alongside professional land managers to experience a complete habitat restoration project. Dress for working in the field and bring water and insect repellent.
