The Program: Invasives brought in from other parts of the world represent a significant challenge to the natural environment of our country and our home landscapes of Marin. When a gardener thinks of an ‘exotic invasive,’ it is usually an insect or a plant. These are, indeed, awful threats, for sure, but there are also exotic invasive diseases, aquatics and mammals that also pose important threats to our native species and environments. Come and learn about examples of these alien threats and what California is doing to deal with them.
The Speaker: Before becoming a Marin Master Gardener in 2014, Bob Mauceli was a Master Gardener for 9 years in New York. Also a member of the California Native Plant Society and a birder, he has built natural habitats in all of the places he and his family have lived. His current landscape includes native trees, shrubs, ground covers and perennials.
