Forestry Field Day: Invasive Woodland Species Control

Tuesday, April 30, 2024 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

The Forest City Parks department and the Iowa DNR would like to invite you to a forestry field day at Thomas Bearse Park in Forest City Iowa to talk about invasive species and forest management.

The Forest City Parks Department has started the difficult process of controlling the European Buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica) in the park.  This field day will talk about what has been done and what will be needed to control this very invasive species.  We will also talk about oak management and the difficulties of perpetuating oak on the landscape.

Free event, and no preregistration required. This event is open to all and we look forward to seeing you on the 30th.
