Join expert botanist Ellen Jacquart, formally of The Nature Conservancy, on Sunday, February 18, from 12:30 pm to 2:00 pm Central Time at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Visitor Center for a presentation about the efforts to stop the selling of invasive plants for landscaping in Indiana.
Ellen directed land stewardship activities for 18 years for The Nature Conservancy in Indiana. She holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in botany and has been involved in numerous invasive plant task forces and working groups. Her talk, titled The Carrot and the Stick: Stopping the Sales of Invasive Plants in Indiana, focuses on how the sale of invasive plants for landscaping leads to invasive populations spreading throughout natural areas. Ellen will discuss two methods being used to try to stop the selling of invasive plants and what progress has been made so far.
The Indiana Dunes Visitor Center is located at 1215 North State Road 49, about one mile north of Interstate 94. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, call 219-395-1882 or visit our website  and our Facebook page.
