AGM 2016 + Guest talk: Pesky plants and how to avoid them
16th March 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us from 7pm onward for QWAG’s famous AGM buffet
Pesky plants talk (8.45pm-9.30pm)
Andrea Griffiths, Kent County Council and Medway Valley Countryside Partnership
Some plants may look innocent but can be real pests.
Giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam and other non-native invasive species cause damage approaching many millions every year.
They take over ponds and rivers, damage river banks and walls, add to flood risk and outcompete other native plant species leaving less space and habitat for native wildlife.
Some species even pose health risks from their sap. Know your role in keeping invasive plants at bay and keeping our ponds, rivers and waterways free.
