(BEDFORD) - The original free workshop on invasive plants was rained out, although not until after a group of 40 some people enjoyed a cookout meal and were ready to start. So event organizers have rescheduled the event for August 15 at Feldun Purdue Ag Center.

If you've been curious why invasive plants are always in the news and wondering if you have any on your farm or woodland, you may want to join us for a forest management workshop.

The program starts at 5 pm and should be over by 8:30 pm. Refreshments will be served.

Over the course of the evening you will hear from professionals on: identifying invasive species in your woods, the benefits of a well-marked timber sale, and how you can effectively control invasive plants in your forest. The free workshop will benefit anyone who has forest land, regardless of their management goals. Wear comfortable shoes since the majority of the program will be standing or walking in the woods.

Feldun Purdue Ag Center is located at 1117 State Road 458 west of Bedford. The event is sponsored by the Southern Indiana Cooperative Invasive Management (SICIM) group, the Lawrence County Soil and Water Conservation District and Purdue Extension. Please RSVP by August 11 to register for the workshop, by calling (812) 279-8117, ext 3 or email .

The program will include some invasive species control demonstrations and the unveiling of an innovative herbicide trial. Anyone needing a reasonable accommodation to participate in the program, prior to the meeting should contact Ryan Bartlett, (812) 797-0292.
