CHS March Meeting: Ontario Forests…Under Pressure
March 27 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Cannington Horticultrual Society invites you to join us for our first meeting of the 2023 season. Richard Dickinson presents ‘Ontario Forests…Under Pressure’.
Richard has over 35 years field biology and environmental consulting. He has taught plant taxonomy, ecology and the history and effects of plants on human civilization at several colleges and universities. He has co-authored 9 books including Weeds of North America, Plants of Southern Ontario, and the ROM field guide to Wildflowers of Ontario. Weeds of North America was awarded “Book of the Year 2014” by the American Horticultural Society in Washington DC.
Native Ontario trees and shrubs are under increasing pressure from climate change, urban sprawl, and invasive species. This presentation focuses on invasive insect species that are causing damage to native trees. Topics will include their identification and what to look for, destructive effects and what native tree and shrub species to plant in their demise. Join us and learn what we can do for our own trees and forests.
Member Registration open at 7pm. We welcome new guests and members to join us and explore the wide variety of events and activities on offer for the 2023 season. We offer both adult, couple and youth memberships. Sign up and get your 2023 Yearbook tonight.
