New pests and diseases are on the rise, and our favorite garden plants are the target. Plant pathologist and author, Margery Daughtrey, shares her perspective and insights on how gardeners need to deal with threats such as rose rosette virus, impatiens downy mildew, boxwood blight and Asian long-horned beetle in a fascinating talk at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morris Township. Margery is the Senior Extension Associate with the Department of Plant Pathology, Cornell University; she has conducted a research and extension program on the management of diseases of ornamental plants since 1978, at Cornell’s Long Island Horticultural Research and Extension Center in riverhead, NY. This program is eligible for 2.0 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU’s.

The Morris County Park Commission features one of the region’s best park systems in the state of New Jersey. It currently protects and maintains 18,730 acres at 38 distinct sites plus offers a year-round calendar of events and activities for all to enjoy!
