Identifying and Removing Harmful Invasive Plants

How do you deal with thugs that take over our private and public green spaces? Why are non-native plants undesirable? Where did they come from and why? Learn best practices for removal and replacement to benefit wildlife.


John Barber has been a citizen scientist for over fifty years, active in green space preservation, the recovery of Peregrine Falcon populations, and the continuing recovery of Eastern Bluebirds. Now retired after 35 years in the business world, he is focused on restoring and maintaining biodiversity. He continues studies on bluebirds and passionately performs habitat restoration and ecological gardening with native plants. He served on the board of the Nature Center for ten years, including two terms as Board President. He is co-leading the Friends of Lower Lake, a program of the Doan Brook Watershed Partnership, working to restore habitat around Lower Lake Park in the Shaker Parklands.
