Let’s conserve the Biodiversity of Ljubljana Moors II

The Project Let’s Conserve the Biodiversity of Ljubljana Moors II is a continuation and upgrading of the project Let’s Conserve the Biodiversity of Ljubljana Moors, which was carried out in 2013. In 2014, we continued to raise public awareness of the threats posed by the invasive alien species at Ljubljana Moors. The emphasis was on the invasion of the Canada and giant Goldenrod. To raise awareness we organized lectures for primary school pupils and students and / or landowners in Moors.

We upgraded the project by establishing an advisory phone and web address through which it was possible to obtain advice and information on the identification of invasive plant species and their suppression. If there are unusual plants you do not know in your yard or garden, but you think they are non-native and invasive, send us their photo to info@lutra.si. An expert botanist will determine the plant and advise you how to remove it if it is invasive. Within the project we prepared leaflet about Goldenrod. In addition, we checked the success of removing the Goldenrod plants on the plots from project in 2013 and continued with removing on newly selected surfaces. With the help of high school students, we also carried out awareness campaigns to remove Goldenrod.
