In acknowledgment of New York Invasive Species week, July 9-15, our Community Horticulture Program is hosting this fun and informative class on making paper from both recycled and invasive plant material.

We will first give a brief discussion on invasive plants in NYS. Then, the fun begins!

  • Every participant will create and leave with their very own artisan paper creations.
  • Participants are encouraged to share their war stories and battle strategies for combatting invasives.
  • A handout will be provided with more resources on utilizing invasive plants in many different ways.


Marjorie Colao-Pullman is a Master Gardener and a Master Forest Owner, as well as a local artist presently working with repurposed and/or recycled materials to create mixed media pieces.

Gia Alyce Rowan is a 2014 Kingston High School graduate, earning a degree this year in Liberal Arts and Environmental Studies from SUNY Dutchess, then attending SUNY ESF this fall for conservation biology.

Registration is just $15/person, and space is limited to 20 participants.    **REGISTRATION FULL**
