Invasive Plants

Sarah Delher's enthousiastic presentation to our March 5th general meeting awakened KHCA to the environmental threats represented by plants brought into North America that are not native to our continent and have few natural contraints on their rampaging expansion.  

Three of those plants are the BuckthornGarlic Mustard  and the   Dog Strangling Vine.

To help Katimavik-Hazeldean residents to become aware of these plants, we have linked to Ontario Invasive Plants Council the Un-wanted posters from the Ontario Invasive Species website.

Their “Invading Species Hotline” @ 1-800-563-7711 is also a source of more information on combating and controlling these and other invasive plants.
