  • This event has passed.

Don’t let weeds get the upper hand this season! Learn how to identify the most common annual and perennial lawn and garden weeds using leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds. The spring section focuses on early season weeds; the fall section covers species that should be removed before winter, making next year’s garden more maintenance free. Ecologically friendly methods of managing weed infestations are discussed in both sections.

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Friday, September 16 (Rain Date: Friday, September 23)
