Upcoming Events

The NCWMA hosts a variety of programs to raise awareness about invasive species. We work with audiences of all ages and backgrounds, including school groups, community organizations, and professionals. Some of our programs involve hands-on removal of invasive plants, while others provide an opportunity to exchange information and resources to help us combat invasives. If you would like to partner with the NCWMA to host an event, or would like more information on an event, please contact us
