Cathy Lucero, Clallam County Noxious Weed Control coordinator, will provide information about plants that are poisonous to people and animals at noon on Thursday, June 13, in the county commissioners’ meeting room at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.
The presentation is part of the Green Thumb Garden Tips educational series sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners; it is free and open to the public.
Lucero will provide tips for spotting some of the area’s poisonous weeds. She will also identify some common landscape plants that are toxic to humans, pets and livestock, and offer weed and garden management practices when planting or encountering these plants.
Gardeners may bring samples of weeds that they would like help identifying or removing from their garden. Samples should be bagged in a clear, zipped plastic bag.
Lucero studied Botany at the University of Washington and completed her degree in Environmental Science through the Huxley program at Western Washington University. She has been Noxious Weed Control Coordinator for Clallam County for 21 years.
