In partnership with the Rockfish Valley Foundation, Blue Ridge PRISM is happy to offer an in-person workshop to guide you through invasive plant management in the spring and summer.
Join Blue Ridge PRISM’s knowledgeable staff at the beautiful Rockfish Valley Trails to learn about invasive plant ID, herbicide safety, basic management strategies, and a step-by-step tutorial on how to use herbicide techniques as well as manual control options.
This in-person workshop will take place on Friday, April 5th from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm in Nellysford. The site of the workshop is a short walking distance from the main trailhead (Camille Trailhead) of the Rockfish Valley Trails in Nelson County. This workshop will include an invasive plant identification walk on the trail.
It is our hope that participants will be able to take what they learn and utilize it in their own backyards.
Space is limited to 25 participants.
Registration fee is $25. Registration via EventBrite. Register HERE.
