Invasive Plants of the Midcoast

July 28, 2023

​Louisa Crane joins The Rockport Garden Club on August 3 at 1 PM.  She will discuss how to identify invasive plants that have crept into the garden and how to remove and prevent them from returning.  An invasive plant is defined as a plant that is not native to a particular ecosystem and whose introduction can cause economic or environmental harm.  Approximately one-third of the 2100 plant species recorded in Maine are not native. This does not mean they are invasive, but they are interlopers and are not native to the ecosystem. Do join us for a stimulating talk on the subject of invasives and how to work with or without them.

With an Environmental Studies degree and passion for her subject, Louisa’s presentation has never been more timely. She is the Program Coordinator at Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District (KLSWCD) and spearheaded the efforts in 2021 in phase two invasive plant management project at Merryspring.

All are welcome to come to this presentation. Encourage your friends and neighbors to attend.  If you have any questions, you can find details at or contact us directly at Kindly respect the privacy of our venue; do not call The West Rockport Baptist Church.
