Ontario Nature hosts invasive plant species session at Willoughby Nature Reserve

Learn how to identify and control invasive plants on your own property


(Caledon Hills, Ontario) This weekend, come out to Ontario Nature’s Willoughby Nature Reserve and learn methods for controlling invasive plants on your own property and find out which native Ontario plants you can use to create an ecologically sound and healthy garden. Attendees will also help restore the reserve’s natural balance by removing invasive periwinkle. These garden-plants-gone-wild have crowded out the forest’s native species and are damaging its unique habitat. Pre-registration for this event is required.


WHAT:

Weeding at Willoughby!

WHEN:

July 12 - 13, 2008 (sessions begin at 10:00 am on both days)

WHERE:

The Willoughby Nature Reserve is located 5 kilometres south of Caledon Village.
