Ecologist Jim Steffen takes us into McDonald Woods to learn about invasive buckthorn. For more information on invasive plants, visit chicagobotanic.org/research/conservation/invasive/.
Joan O’Shaughnessy, ecologist at the Chicago Botanic Garden, shows us how to identify garlic mustard and explains the importance of removing it and other invasive plants to protect our native habitats. You can learn about this and so much more at World Environment Day at the Chicago Botanic Garden on June 5, 2010. Visit chicagobotanic.org/wed for more information.
