The Effect of Invasive Species in Coastal Georgia

  • Tuesday, September 18, 2012
  • 7:00 PM
  • First Presbyterian Church, 520 E. Washington Ave. Savannah
Non-native species have been introduced into North America since the first European settlement.  Many have proved useful and are relied upon today to sustain our society. However, a small fraction have become invasive and have harmful effects on our natural environment.

Eamonn Leonard, Natural Resource Biologist with GA Department of Natural Resources, will be discussing the major invasive species that are active in the coastal area and the various effects they have on the environment around us.
