This class is an introduction to the problem of invasive, non-native pest plants in Georgia. Students will learn to identify the major offenders, their current ranges and habitats, and how these plants impact natural plant communities. Basic management and control strategies will be discussed. Most of the class will be indoors; after an early lunch, there will be field identification exercises, management strategy discussions, and control demonstrations. Please note the extended class time and bring a sack lunch.
