The date for this event has already passed.

Invasive plants can be found all over the Hudson Valley, choking out streams and causing extensive economic and environmental damage. Fortunately, plant fibers can be used in constructive ways. As part of NY Invasive Species week, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s Community Horticulture Program is hosting a fun and informative class, Making Paper from Invasive Plants.

The class will start with a brief discussion on invasive plants in NYS. Then, the fun begins! Participants will learn how to make paper and crafts from both recycled and invasive plant material, and will create and leave with their very own artisan paper creations.

Participants are encouraged to share their war stories and battle strategies for combatting invasive species. A handout will be provided with more resources on utilizing invasive plants in many different ways.

Fee: $15/person which includes materials, and space is limited to 20 participants.

Pre-registration is required by July 6.
