Conquer Invasive Plants with John Barber

When: January 14, 2021 at 10am

Chagrin River Watershed Partners is hosting a free live virtual talk on Thursday, January 14, at 10:00 a.m via Zoom. John Barber will be discussing invasive plant species and sharing effective ways to manage their spread for residents and land managers. He’ll also be sharing some great native alternatives to plant instead! John is the co-chair of the Friends of Lower Lake, a volunteer program of the Doan Brook Watershed Partnership.

John has been a citizen scientist for over fifty years, active in green space preservation, the recovery of Peregrine Falcon populations, and the continuing recovery of Eastern Bluebirds. Now retired after 35 years in the business world, he is focused on restoring and maintaining biodiversity. He continues studies on bluebirds and passionately performs habitat restoration and ecological gardening with native plants.
