East Central Illinois Master Naturalists

“Invasive Plants of East Central Illinois” including alternative plants for landscaping applications. Gardeners and landscapers are faced with a myriad of decisions when planning any project. Plants are not necessarily confined to the spaces where we plant them. Join Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners in fighting invasive plants by becoming informed on which plants are invasive in our area and by choosing plants to avoid ecological problems.
