Learn About Invasive Species

The Rolling Plains Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists is hosting a full day training on invasive species on Saturday, September 19, 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM at River Bend Nature Center.

The intent of the workshop is to train volunteers for the Texas Invaders citizen science program. The class is $10, which covers the cost of materials. Spaces are limited so call River Bend if you are interested in taking part or contact the President of the Rolling Plains TMN, Lila Arnold at Participants will learn how to identify common invasive species and how to report them to the Invaders program. Participants should bring a sack lunch. There will be some field work on the grounds at River Bend Nature Center, so dress for the weather. Since it will probably still be hot on this date, you may also want to bring extra drinking water, although River Bend does have water fountains.

Many thanks to River Bend for providing the location for this training.
