The Takoma Hort Club invites you to a talk on:
Ornamental Invasive Species : Assessing the Worst Offenders


Wednesday, July 15, 7:30-9:00pm
at Historic Takoma
7328 Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park, MD

Invasive plants threaten native plant health and biodiversity in both agricultural and natural systems in Maryland. How do we determine which plants are a true threat and which are mere benign garden interlopers? Maryland's Invasive Species Risk Assessment process was established by law to assist with that process.

John Peter Thompson will deliver a presentation on this process. He is a founding member of the Maryland Invasive Species Council, representing the Maryland Nursery, Landscape and Greenhouse Association. He is a member of the Maryland Invasive Plant Advisory Committee, charged with implementing Marylandís new Invasive Plant law, and of the National Invasive Species Council Advisory Committee. He was a founding member and the third President of the Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council, and is currently a consultant to the Smithsonian and USDA Weeds of the Caribbean project, as well as a contributing author to the CABI Invasive Species Compendium.

This talk is FREE and open to all. No need to RSVP.
Please bring a snack to share and wear a recycled nametag.
