Town environmentalists want residents to know some pink plants aren't pretty for the garden.

A presentation on invasive greenery is planned toscheduled for Thursday,, Sept. 14, at Robbins Library, 5 to 7 p.m.

Partnered with volunteers from the Arlington MA Invasives group, this event aims to educate the public about the harm certain species can do to Arlington's ecology and infastructure. 

Volunteers thus have used an eco-friendly pink dye to highlight such plants growing outside of Robbins. They plan to do a removal demonstration of these plants, and those who attend can join in and learn, according to the town website.

The town website states that the invasive plants are set to be replaced by "healthy, native, climate-adaptive plants that will beautify the library lawn." More information about this event can be viewed here >>
