You Can Make A Difference in Your Backyard

A Homeowner’s Guide to Preventing the Introduction and Spread of Invasive Plants in Georgia: You Can Make a Difference in Your Backyard is now available online. This is a new publication by the Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health at the University of Georgia in Tifton. The heart of the publication is based on the Gardensmart Plantwise guidelines developed by the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Included also are 8 pages of pictures of invasive plants from the Georgia Exotic Pest Plant Council's List of Invasive plants. All the images in the publication are from the Bugwood Image Database. There are over 137,000 images in this database and all of them are free to use for educational purposes.
