Has Your Yard Been Invaded?

Free program offered for homeowners

On Thursday, Nov. 3, the Putnam County Soil and Water District and Cornell Cooperative Extension will share information about a dozen of the most common and aggressive non-native plants in our area and how to manage them. The program is designed for home gardeners and aims at reducing pesticide use as a control.

Since the plants have different growth cycles, controlling and eradicating them requires different approaches. The 90-minute program begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be held at the Putnam County Bureau of Emergency Services at 112 Old Route 6 in Carmel. Register by calling 845-878-7918 or email [email protected]
