INVASIVE NON-NATIVE PLANT SPECIES RECORDING

Online workshop on Wednesday 7th July 2021, 1:30pm-3:30pm

Invasive non-native species are compromising and out-competing our native species in many instances.  In order to tackle the problem of such alien species it is important to record their presence and monitor their populations.   The main non-native invasive plant species of concern in NE Scotland are Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam, Japanese Knotweed, American Skunk Cabbage and Pirri-pirri Bur.  These species are easily recognised and reliable recording of their presence can greatly help in programmes for their control.   Our FREE online identification workshop can help you to recognise these plants and contribute records of their occurrence to the NESBReC database.  The workshop will be hosted on Microsoft Teams and places will be limited.
