Join Horticulturalist Joanna Mentzer in the Bellows and Cassatt rooms to explore a new aspect of the natural world and see for yourself how it can inspire, inform, and shape our connection to nature. Plus, you’ll learn practical applications to help you easily and sustainably care for your own outdoor space.

This month, we’re taking a look at invasive plants in our region and tips for managing them. Join the conversation to learn what makes a plant invasive and how to identify and manage these harmful species in your own backyard. See you there!

About the Instructor

Joanna, AKA Jo, spent her happiest times in the outdoors as a child flipping rocks, building forts, and crick piddling. As an adult, she has found a way to satisfy her inner child and express her gratitude to the beauty of the Ozarks by pouring her efforts into the landscapes at Crystal Bridges. You may find her with the horticulture crew attacking invasive plants, planting new landscapes, or quietly stalking pollinators on flowers to capture the perfect picture. Wherever you find Joanna outside, you can be sure you have found her in her happy place doing all she can to preserve it.
