This program will discuss the issues that invasive species create across multiple landscapes, including forested properties. Invasive species cost Americans billions of dollars every year to control. Participants will learn to recognize, report, and manage some of the area’s least desirable invasive species, while gaining an understanding of their impact to the environment, human health, and (more importantly) your budget. You will learn how invasives are spread, how to prevent them, and how to control some of the nastiest invaders.
