Invasive Plants: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, with Johnny Randall

A great deal is known about the negative effects that invasive plants have on the biological diversity in natural ecosystems and in the cultivated landscape, and the importance of native plant use. Despite this heightened awareness, many continue to ignore the negative ecological consequences posed by invasive plants.

In this presentation, Johnny Randall, director of conservation at the North Carolina Botanical Garden from 1998 to 2023 and currently adjunct faculty in the UNC-Chapel Hill program in environment, ecology, and energy (EP3), will discuss from where and why invasive plants are a problem, misconceptions in the invasive/non-native/nativar/native/near-native debate, and hopeful solutions.

Free for club members. $5 guest fee at the door for nonmembers.
