Winter Learning Series Lecture #2
February 9, 2:00 p.m.

​“Invasive Plants of Pennsylvania”

Rebecca Urban, Associate Professor of Biology at Lebanon Valley College will teach you how  to identify common invasive plants found in Pennsylvania, and how these plants negatively impact the environment. Species such as Japanese barberry, the non-native bush honeysuckle, and garlic mustard have fundamentally changed our Pennsylvania forests. What you choose to plant in your backyard can have consequences to our forested landscapes. Planting native species provides vital habitat for wildlife and supports pollinators.
