CONCORDIA, Mo. – Invasive plants harm woods, meadows and crop fields. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will offer a workshop on how to reduce problems from invasive plants from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 18, at the Concordia Community Center, 802 S. Gordon St.

The workshop will help property owners and land managers identify and control invasive, non-native plants. Invasive plants often choke out native forbs and grasses that are friendly to wildlife and enjoyed by people. They pose costly problems for agriculture. The workshop, which is free, will address issues for both urban and rural landowners.

For more information, call 660-747-8200, ext. 117.
