Close the Door on Invasive Species by Attending Workshops

The day before the Minnesota Invasive Species Conference 2008 begins in Duluth, organizers are offering public workshops on Sunday, October 26. Entitled "Closing the Door on Invasive Species," these training and informational sessions held at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center are designed for cabin, woodland and lakeshore owners, land managers, service providers, educators, students, and other professionals.

The presentations will emphasize applied management and prevention measures to protect woodland, shoreland, and wetland resources from invasive species. Topics range from the emerald ash borer and gypsy moths to lake vegetation management plans.

Presenters include experts from University of Minnesota Extension, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Sea Grant programs in Michigan and Minnesota, several consultants, and other organizations.

Costs vary per workshop, ranging from $10 to $30. For information, contact conference administrator Nancy Herselius at info@mnisc.org or (515) 480-2420.
