Tri-Village Garden Club of Bartlett, Hanover Park and Streamwood invites everyone hear Kurt Dreisilker's presentation on "Invasive Plant Species," including plants to avoid planting in your garden and why, at 7 p.m. Sept. 19 at the Poplar Creek Public Library, 1405 South Park Ave., Streamwood.
Dreisilker will focus on what invasive species are, where they occur, why we should care about them, as well as which plants are considered invasive. Some common plants utilized in horticulture may be considered invasive even though they appear to behave themselves within the garden, while, conversely, others that are aggressive garden weeds are not even considered invasive!
Kurt Dreisilker is manager of Natural Resources at Morton Arboretum in Lisle. The 1700 acres of natural areas are managed to promote the diversity of life native to northern Illinois woodlands, wetlands and prairies. Some of the major activities utilized in his work include prescribed fire, native species enrichment and controlling invasive species.
The Tri Village Garden Club of Bartlett, Hanover Park and Streamwood annual dues are only $15. Our meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month.
For information please contact Jill Fox, club president, at (630) 830-0118 or visit our website at www.trivillagegardenclub.org.
