956 Spring 2019 Beautiful and Destructive: Controlling Invasive Plants
Wednesday, 11:50–1:15, Mar. 27
Rose Gallery at Reston Community Center, Lake Anne
Instructor: Erin Stockschlaeder
Coordinator: Fred Kaiser

Over the last 30 years, invasive plant species have slowly taken a firm foothold in our area by out-competing our native species. Often beautiful and with no predators or pathogens to keep them in check, they can have damaging effects in yards, gardens, and parklands. Plants such as English ivy, Japanese honeysuckle, and tree of heaven are all invasive and wreak havoc in our natural areas. Stockschlaeder will present a discussion on the leading invasive species in Fairfax County and the award-winning control program now being conducted in Fairfax County parks.
Erin Stockschlaeder is an ecologist and the program coordinator for the Invasive Plant Management Area Program for Fairfax County Park Authority, having earned a BS from State University of New York and a master’s degree from George Mason University.
