Eradication of the Dog-strangling vine and Black swallow-wort
Date: Friday, Sept. 14
Location: Meeting point in front of the Montreal Insectarium, 4581 Sherbrooke E., Montreal, QC H1X 2B2
Details and registration (coming soon): Deux plantes envahissantes s’ajoutent aux menaces contre le papillon monarque
Two invasive plants can be found at the border of the Montreal Botanical Garden and Maisonneuve Park: Dog-strangling vine and Black swallow-wort. In addition to displacing native species and harming plant and animal diversity, they have been in the spotlight due to their negative impact on the monarch butterfly, whose populations are declining. Operations to eradicate these plants within the Montreal Botanical Garden were carried out by staff. This project is aimed at the periphery of the site of the Botanical Garden and the Montreal Insectarium, where the plant is still active.
