Wednesday, March 21, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm – Invasive Plants: What Are They? And What Can Be Done? Webinar

What are invasive plant species and what harm do they do to an ecosystem? Invasive plant species are a threat to natural areas throughout the country. No habitat or region is immune from the threat of invasive species. They displace native plants, eliminate native food and cover for wildlife, and threaten rare plant and animal species. Nearly all landscapes, both private gardens and public spaces, have become the unwelcome home to many invasives.

Tuesday, March 20, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm – Attracting Pollinators to Your Landscape

Celebrate the first day of spring with this illustrated evening program on transforming gardens and landscapes into native bee habitat. Learn about native bees and what steps we can take to create pollinator friendly landscaping including providing food for bees and nesting opportunities to raise their young. Join Tom Sullivan, M.A.L.D, of PollinatorsWelcome.com, for an evening filled with ideas and inspiration – from simple techniques to community practices focusing on connectivity. Tom is a pollinator habitat designer, land consultant, and educator with a special focus on native bees. He gives talks and workshops on the nesting, foraging and life cycles of native bee species in New England. A beekeeper in his youth, Tom switched his interest from honeybees to native bees in 2008 after Colony Collapse Disorder emerged and it became clear how intricately tied whole ecosystem health is to pollinator well-being and human survival. This event is co-sponsored with the Northfield Bird Club and the Athol Bird and Nature Club. Free and open to all, at the Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center 99 Millers Falls Road Northfield, MA 01360. For more information contact (413)659-4462 or visit http://www.h2opower.ca/recreation/northfield-mountain-recreation-and-environmental-center/

Monday, March 19, 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm – Developing a Comprehensive Integrative Pest Management Plan Webinar

An Integrated Pest Management Plan (IPM) is a tool for plant professionals to control pests in a timely, safe, and efficient manner and is a vital component in producing and maintaining healthy plants and landscapes. An IPM plan includes several aspects: sanitation and prevention, conservation, and augmentation methods using beneficial organisms. Traditionally, IPM plans also include the judicious use of chemical pesticides when all else fails. In this webinar, Alexis will discuss the negative effects of chemicals on beneficial insects and will evaluate other options such as OMRI certified and ‘safer’ products that can be incorporated as a last resort. This webinar will explore and discuss the components of an IPM plan and explain the basics of how to design an IPM plan tailored to individual needs.

Anna’s Taqueria (800 Boylston St., Back Bay, Boston): Finally, the local burrito chain has opened its long-awaited Prudential Center location, serving up its usual menu of tacos and more.

Apm Coffee (99 Kneeland St., Chinatown, Boston): Located in the One Greenway apartment building, this coffee shop serves Intelligentsia coffee and swooped in shortly after Beantowne Coffee closed its shop at this address.

Caffe Nero (1375 Boylston St., Fenway, Boston): This European cafe chain continues its Boston takeover with a Fenway location.

Craft Table & Bar (107 Porter St., East Boston): Located in the former Ecco space, this restaurant comes from a group that is opening several different restaurants around the Worcester area and beyond (including a Worcester location of Craft Table & Bar).

Exodus Bagels (3346 Washington St., Jamaica Plain, Boston): This farmers market staple has opened a permanent storefront in the former Canto 6 space. Exodus’ long-promised Roslindale space is still in the works; meanwhile, it serves as the company’s commissary.
