Escaping the Stranglehold of Invasive Plants

Escaping the Stranglehold of Invasive Plants

Join Barrington Public Library on Tuesday, March 28, at 1:00 PM and learn about some of the invasive plant species you may encounter in Rhode Island with Sally Johnson from ecoastal design.

Ever feel overwhelmed by the invasive plants in your garden, yard, and the public parks around you? This talk will help you identify those plants and develop strategies to combat their spread. Note that late winter is a good time to attack many of the worst of the worst so we will discuss what can be done at that time in particular. Sally Johnson is a Certified Invasive Species Manager and owner of the native plant design firm, ecoastal design. She lives surrounded by her native plant garden on the East Bay Bike Path, which was a mess of invasives when she bought the place.

Free and open to all. Registration is required with in-person and Zoom (online) options available!

Before the presentation, seniors 60-years-of-age and older are invited to go down to the Peck Center for lunch at 11:45 am. Lunch can be enjoyed for a suggested donation of $3. Please call 401-247-1926 x201 to reserve your seat for lunch at least 24 hours before.
