Thursday February 25th 10-2:30pm, virtually held via ZOOM, RUP credits available
These trainings are great opportunities for staff from parks departments, drain and road commissions, public works, utilities, city garden volunteers, county and township boards, and anyone interested in invasive species and their management! Anyone is welcome to attend.
This session will have two separate tracks following an introduction from the CISMA Coordinator. The in-the-field track will focus on identification of priority species, best management practices, and decontamination of field equipment. The manager track will focus on the public health and economic concerns of invasive species as well as take a look at how local ordinances are being used to fight invasive plants on the municipal level.
Each course will also offer an MDARD pesticide applicator re-certification credit! Registrants in one of the four CISMA counties will also be eligible to pick up a “swag bag” of accompanying materials at their local Conservation District office.*
*Register before February 12th to reserve a bag.
