The Ramsey County Cooperative Weed Management Area group invites you to attend an invasive plant field trip!
The tour will be held at
Ramsey County's Battle Creek Regional Park
Tuesday, July 19
9:00 am - Noon
Master Gardeners from ANY county welcome. CE hours: 3
We will hike through the park to get a close-up look at invasive plants that are beginning to move into our area: narrowleaf bittercress, Japanese knotweed and Japanese hedge parsley. We will also see garlic mustard. Potted and pressed samples of other new invasive plant species that are on our watch list will be available to see.
Bring a water bottle and lunch if you'd like. Some extra water will be available. Please wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather and off trail hiking!
Carpooling recommended! We will meet in the Point Douglas Road parking lot at 9:00 am sharp. To get there, take Lower Afton Road to Point Douglas Road South and turn north.

Please indicate whether you'd be interested in an extra, short, after lunch trip to Maplewood Nature Center to see an Oriental bittersweet and Japanese barberry infestation.
