A weed warrior with 35 years of experience as the University of California Cooperative Extension Regional Advisor in Southern California will talk to the Borrego Springs Botany Society December 14 about “What’s up with these Invasive Plants?”
Now retired, Carl E. Bell refuses to give up the battle, and is an independent consultant offering advice, training and support to anyone wanting to join him in what he considers is an imperative battle. “Invasive plants are everywhere,” Bell says. “And wherever they are, the natives are hurting. And it’s not just the plants, native critters from insects to bighorn sheep are losing the food and shelter they need for survival.”
Bell, who has a master’s degree in botany from California State University Long Beach, will start his presentation at 10 a.m. at the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Visitor Center, 200 Palm Canyon Drive, Borrego Springs 92004. Admission is free, and the public is invited.
