Herbicides are an important tool in the invasive plant manager’s toolbox. But how do you know what to use, when to use it and how to apply it? What about health and ecological risks? And what are the rules and regulations at the state and local levels? In this workshop, Amanda Devine from Maine Coast Heritage Trust, Megan Patterson from the Maine Board of Pesticides Control and Mary Ann Nahf from the Harpswell Conservation Commission will give you a thorough overview of what you need to know before applying any pesticide.

Amanda Devine is Maine Coast Heritage Trust’s Regional Stewardship Manager for southern and Midcoast Maine. She has 10+ years of experience in non-native invasive plant management. Megan Patterson is the Pesticide Program Manager for the Board of Pesticides Control. As Chair of the Harpswell Conservation Commission, Mary Ann Nahf and the group work towards ensuring pesticide control measures will not adversely affect the town’s marine resources.

This event is part of the Winter Educational Series offered by the Harpswell Invasive Plant Partnership, in collaboration with Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust and Harpswell Heritage Land Trust.
