Join us for a fascinating and informative presentation by Francie Von Mertens on the effects of invasive plants on natural communities in our region, identification and steps you can take. Everyone is welcome!
A longtime member of the Peterborough Conservation Commission, Francie is active in land conservation projects with NH Audubon and the Harris Center, as well as the town of Peterborough. She writes about the natural world for the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript and elsewhere. The negative impacts of invasive plant species on the natural world is a growing concern. As early detection and removal of invasives works best, she will go just about anywhere, just about anytime, to present the topic to interested groups. She can be reached at email@example.com.
Everyone is welcome!
