As we enter spring and approach Earth Day we are reminded to care for God’s Creation. Are you interested in learning about non-native invasive plants and what you can do to stop the spread? Non-native invasive plants impact local habitats. Skyland United Methodist’s Caretakers of God’s Creation mission group is hosting a presentation and site walk on the church property to identify and discuss non-native invasive plants. Presentation will be led by our own Blue Ridge Naturalist Barb Harrison. Join us at Skyland United Methodist’s fellowship hall on Tuesday evening, April 17 at 6-7:30pm to learn ways to care for God’s creation.

Barb Harrison is retired Medical Laboratory Technologist instructor from AB Technical College. She has an enormous interest in the natural aspects of our area, including native plants and wildlife along with knowledge of invasive species and how they affect our area. She is a Master Gardener and a Blue Ridge Naturalist.
