Title: Battling Exotic Trees and Streamside Weeds
Presenter: Bill Neill, Riparian Repairs

Bill Neill, invasive weed control expert, will discuss problems caused by and methods for controlling major invasive perennial weeds clogging our streams and exotic trees crowding out and displacing our native trees and shrubs. Invasive weeds are one of the greatest threats to native flora and fauna, to free-flowing streams and to water retention in floodplains of southern California. Bill has helped several CNPS Chapters with severe weed invasions. Come and learn about riparian weeds and what control methods work best!
