Tackling Invasive Species in our Piedmont Habitats

January 12, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Announcing the next educational event: Neville Handel, Land Manager at the North Carolina Botanical Garden, will lecture about invasive species and how we can keep them at bay in our Piedmont habitats. Free; all ages welcome. Email registration is appreciated but not required.

Above: a patch of Elaeagnus growing on the Church of the Advocate’s site appears tame in winter (left), but its invasive nature is more clear in summer (right). Weather permitting, Neville Handel will also lead a hands on demonstration of how to tackle this problem area. Handel helps manage over 650 acres of natural areas of the NC Botanical Garden for the benefit of native species and communities. He has a Master’s Degree in Ecology from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and over 10 years of experience in Land Conservation and Restoration.
