Trees and Invasive Species of Park and Residential Lands – Spring Forum
Saturday, March 23, 2013
9:15-11:15 a.m.
Lynnhurst Community Center, 1345 W. Minnehaha Parkway, Minneapolis.

Our urban forest is under siege from both insect pests and aggressive non-native plant species.  Dutch elm disease is still taking its toll and now the Emerald ash borer has invaded Minneapolis.  Invasive plant species are displacing desirable native species in many areas, on both park and residential lands.  Ralph Sievert, Director of Forestry and Marcia Holmberg, Natural Resources Coordinator of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board will discuss the state of our urban forest and what you can do to help restore and sustain it.
The Tree Trust and other exhibitors will also be present.

This Forum is sponsored by the Lynnhurst Environmental Committee and the Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association.   For more information, see https://enduringenvirons.wordpress.com/ or email Lynnhurst.env.comm@gmail.com .
