SPRINGFIELD, Vt. – Property values, human health, quality of life, flood resiliency, water quality, ecological stability, and economic strength are all threatened by problem plants that run rampant in our communities. We all suffer when aggressive plants choke out forest canopies; invade forests and roadsides; and monopolizing riverbanks, fields, backyards, and farms. Don’t panic!

Mike Bald of Got Weeds? has words of wisdom to keep us from feeling discouraged or helpless. No need to resort to herbicides! Come to the Springfield Town Library, 43 Main Street, in Springfield Wednesday, Nov. 20, from 6-8 p.m., to learn about dealing with some of the most notorious weeds out there. Mike brings nearly two decades of experience and touches on some of the ways towns across the region can and should be communicating and collaborating to manage this growing problem – pun very much intended.

This free, accessible program is sponsored by the Springfield Town Library and the Black River Action Team. For more information, contact BRAT Director Kelly Stettner at 802-738-0456 or blackrivercleanup@gmail.com.
