Join us for the monthly Library Coffee Hour with a special speaker and topic.
Join Dr. Sylvan Kaufman to learn more about invasive plants in the Southwest. Participants will learn how to identify common invasive species and distinguish them from similar-looking natives. Different control techniques will be discussed as well as what to do after invasive plants are removed.
