New Hope Audubon Society Membership Meeting
Date: Thursday, March 1, 2001
Time: 7:30 p.m.
Place: Totten Center, NC Botanical Gardens, Chapel Hill
Speaker: Johnny Randall
Topic: Invasive Exotic Plants and Their Effect on Wildlife
Are invasive plants imported from all over the planet taking over
North Carolina's natural areas? Will kudzu eventually cover Cary? If
so, what effect will this invasion have on our state's birds? Johnny
Randall, the assistant director of conservation for the North
Carolina Botanical Garden, will answer these and other questions.
Please join us for what promises to be a very informative evening.
All are welcome to attend.
