The Habitat Stewardship Program for Species at Risk and the City of Victoria are co-sponsors of workshops today (3/21) and next Saturday (3/28) that teach residents how to eliminate invasive “aliens” (plants, that is) from the local ecosystem.

Today’s two workshops are from10 a.m. to noon in Summit Park (meet at the playground near the Blackwood Street entrance – map), and again from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Beacon Hill Park (meet at the Nursery Road parking lot – map).

Next Saturday’s (3/28) workshop repeats at the Beacon Hill Park location, same time (1 p.m. to 3 p.m.).

One of most invasive non-native plants, Spurge daphne, has to be handled very carefully. It’s poisonous and can cause severe eye and skin irritation.
