National Public Lands Day with @heartlandcisma! We’re pulling Caesar’s weed to help restore one of Circle B’s habitats. Removing invasive species is an important part of restoring environmental lands. #npld #nationalpubliclandsday2018 #publiclands #invasivespecies #invasiveplants
Did you know you can use beeswax cloths to replace cling wrap and ziploc bags? #reduceplastic #reduceplasticwaste #microplastics • We had a great time practicing for our #plasticpollution film screening and #makeandtake class tomorrow!
These lacy leaves are evidence of the #airpotatobeetle doing WORK! Biocontrols help slow plants down, but they aren’t meant to be a cure-all. Remember to pick up any air potato tubers you find this fall/winter and throw them in the garbage, not the leaf litter pile, so they don’t sprout in the spring! . #airpotato #exoticspecies #invasivespecies #airpotatoleafbeetle #biologicalcontrolagents
We’re hosting a film screening of #SmogOfTheSea for #MicroplasticsAwarenessMonth (September)! After the film screening, participants will learn how to make their own #beeswaxfoodwraps to take home with them. Big thanks to Maia Mcguire, @FloridaSeagrant in Flagler County for this program idea! #Tickets are $13.50 for early bird registration, ends August 31. Link in bio!
Had a wonderful tour this morning at #Se7enWetlands! Thank you, Julie, for you time and interest in working with UF/IFAS Extension. We’re looking forward to planning some programming in partnership with #se7enwetlands in the near future, keep an eye on our Facebook and eventbrite pages for announcements.
Look who I found while walking around @uflorida yesterday! #airpotatoleafbeetle #biocontrol #invasivespeciescontrol
