Haley Springston, Watershed Planning Coordinator at the Rondout Neversink Stream Management Program, will lead a discussion detailing Knotweed treatment efforts and how to identify and manage Knotweed. Japanese Knotweed is an invasive plant species that was introduced to North America in the 1800s as an ornamental plant. Since then, it has spread to all parts of the country, and has been rapidly taking over streambeds in the Catskills and disturbing local ecosystems by out-competing native plant species.
