Invasive Weeds: Know Your Enemies

Multnomah County Master Gardeners Speaker Series

Tuesday, October 9, 2012 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Invasive Weeds: Know Your Enemies

Speaker: Mary Logalbo, West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District

Do you have invasive plants or weeds in your yard? How would you know and, maybe even, why should you care? Mary Logalbo will help us all learn more about this timely subject. She will give us skills to identify some of the key invasives and teach us what we can do about them. In addition to bringing some live plant specimens to increase familiarity with these thugs, Mary will provide useful handouts for attendees to take home.

Mary Logalbo has worked as a conservation planner with Soil & Water Conservation Districts in Oregon for the past five plus years with an emphasis on native plant restoration, invasive species control programs and public education program development. After receiving her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science from Plattsburgh State University (PSU) in northern NewYork , Mary worked as the Executive Director of the Au Sable River Association (AsRA), a non-profit watershed organization near Lake Champlain in northeastern New York. Last year Mary completed the OSU Extension Organic Master Gardener Certification program. She currently works as an Urban Conservationist with the West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District, where she coordinates the District’s invasive species and urban habitat restoration programs and assists with the District’s school and community garden programs.
