Details
Managing Invasive Plants will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to properly identify invasive plants and develop strategies for treatment and control.
Invasive weeds and pests are a major threat to our natural and cultivated landscapes, spreading quickly and displacing or killing native plants. Invasive species (plants, insects, and animals) are costing the United States more than $138 billion each year, due to their economic impact on agriculture, forestry, fisheries, waterways, wildlife, and ornamental landscapes. Ecologists now rank invasion by exotic plants, animals and pathogens second only to habitat loss as a major threat to local biodiversity.

To Be Covered
A portion of the day will be spent in the field at Susquehanna State Park (along the river in Williamsport), learning hands-on about herbicide safety and use, as well as plant identification and equipment use.

Registration Deadline: Friday, August 19, 2016

This course is eligible for 5 PCH CEUs.
