On the Wild Side
Lecture on identification and removal of invasive species plus creative uses for them––May 19
Westmoreland Sanctuary will host On the Wild Side, a lecture and creative workshop, to educate and involve the general public in the identification and proper removal of invasive species while demonstrating creative, fun uses for those non-native plants after their removal. Come design your own floral arrangements. You will be surprised by how beautiful invasives can be!
The two-hour lecture and creative workshop will be led by Steve Ricker, Director of Conservation and Wildlife Management at Westmoreland Sanctuary and Invasive Plant Specialist; Glenn Ticehurst, Partner at Benedek & Ticehurst Landscape Architects; and Nadia Ghannam, Event Floral Arranger. The trio will inform participants about removal, disposal, and replacement of invasives and also demonstrate creative, free-form arrangements for removed plants.
On the Wild Side will be held at Westmoreland Sanctuary, 260 Chestnut Ridge Road, Mt. Kisco, on Thursday, May 19, at 10 a.m.
Registration is required. Participants are welcome to take home their floral arrangements.
