I wanted to fill you in on a recent conference I attended. The NC-EPPC annual meeting (North Carolina Exotic Pest plant Council) was held last week in Chapel Hill at the new visitor center for the North Carolina Botanic Garden. These meetings bring together botanical professionals from across the region to discuss strategies and methods of curbing the spread of invasive plants in our wild landscapes. If you would like to learn more about the council, it's mission, or this year's conference, visit this link. If you'd like to become a council member, you can download a membership form from that same link. Enjoy!
