Join us on a nature walk to learn about the difference between native plants that are meant to be in our ecosystem and invasive plants that have been introduced and now cause ecological problems. Cheryl Hamilton is a Master Naturalist and an active member of the San Antonio Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas. She was the co-founder of the Balcones Satellite of the Invaders of Texas program in 2010. Cheryl has presented over 100 programs on invasive and native plants.
Preceding the walk, Cheryl will review the 12 most invasive plants in San Antonio. Management as well as the removal of these plants will be addressed. Following the classroom session, participants will have a chance to look for invasive plants along the park trails. This will be a challenge, however, because the park actively attempts to eradicate these species.
