Invasive Exotic Species and Control Workshop

Join us to learn about identifying and controlling some of the most troublesome invasive exotic plants like cogongrass, Japanese climbing fern, privet, and others. We will also address exotic insects that are causing, or will cause, big headaches for forestry and natural resource professionals. Earn pesticide applicator CEU’s, forestry CEU’s and connect with partnership and assistance opportunities.
