Geoff Ellis, a licensed landscape architect with experience in land conservation and management, will give a presentation on invasive plants in Utah. He will talk about the native landscapes of Utah and how they have been changed by invasive species, what some of the most significant noxious weeds are here, which invasive species we’re most likely to find in our own yards -even in our local nurseries!- and how to control them.
Date: Wednesday, December 7th
Where: Sugar House Park Garden Center, 1602 East 2100 South
