What makes a weed a weed? How can you tell your oriental bittersweet from your Japanese barberry and why should you care that you can? Invasive plants are spreading in our forests and open spaces, and harm the environment as they reduce biodiversity and resources for native wildlife. New Jersey spends millions in labor and resources to remove invasives each year. Join us on a hike through the CMA as we learn to identify New Jersey’s top ten least wanted, as well as the native species we hope to see! By the end of our hike, you will be able to identify all of the bad guys- and hopefully understand why honeysuckle isn’t so sweet and how multiflora rose can be such a thorn in the side… literally!
