"Invasive Plants: Unweaving the Web of Native Life," is the topic of the Lake County Audubon meeting at 7:30 p.m. Monday, May 5, at the Libertyville village hall, 118 W. Cook Ave. Catherine McGlynn, coordinator for the Northeast Illinois Invasive Plant Partnership, will discuss how native plants are being replaced by invasive plants in forests, prairies, and wetlands, and which animals may be affected by these changes. She will also provide recommendations and resources to assist native plants and animals. Invasive plants directly and indirectly affect many native animals, as well as the plants they displace, by depriving native animals of food and shelter on which they have come to depend. All are welcome. Home school families are especially encouraged to attend. Call (847) 362-5134.
