Managing Invasive Plant Species on the UVic Campus
with Lindsay Kathrens and Julia Jennings

Lindsay and Julia will share their experience of invasive species management on the University of Victoria campus over a period of several years, both in coordinating volunteer invasive species removal efforts, and in developing an Invasive Species Management Strategy for campus forest and meadow ecosystems. They will explore the barriers they encountered along the way, discuss failures and successes, and demonstrate the hope they have for restoring vitality both in UVic's vital ecosystems, and in the communities responsible for their stewardship. Many of the ecosystems on the campus have lost a great deal of their integrity, but still have a great deal left to offer communities through ecological restoration and education about native ecosystems.

UVic, MacLaurin Bldg, Rm D-116
Cost: Non-member drop-in by donation / students free   ·   Remember $2.50 for parking at UVic
