The theme for July 31st will be Leave No Trace. Neal Dombrowski from Red Butte Gardens will be filling us in on invasive plants and what we can do to prevent them from spreading! Check out Neal's bio below!

Neal Dombrowski bio picture

Neal Dombrowski has worked at Red Butte Garden (RBG) for nearly 9 years as a horticulturalist in the Entrance Gardens and Natural Area. Prior to this, he was a botanist at Dugway Proving Ground and Hill Air Force Base performing plant and wildlife habitat studies. He earned a degree in Botany from Weber State University in 2006. He is passionate most about the process of restoring native plant habitat and controlling invasive plant species. In 2012, he and the late Ann Kelsey, collections manager at the Natural History Museum of Utah (NHMU), created Urban Habitat (UH). Urban Habitat proactively controls noxious weeds surrounding RBG and NHMU. In 2018, UH held 8 weed pluck events, averaged 44 volunteers per event, and controlled nearly 7500 pounds of weeds.
