Join Us For Our 9th Annual Symposium
Invading Swine, Swans and Worms - Oh My!
This year’s guest speakers will share information regarding exotic animal species which are invading our region. Early detection, identification and prompt best management techniques will reduce the negative impacts of these unwelcomed critters.
Bernadette Williams, DNR Plant Pest and Disease Specialist, will share information about crazy worms and a few other animals she is working hard to control.
Dan Hirchert from USDA APHIS Wildlife Services will tell us about efforts to control feral swine and mute swans throughout Wisconsin.
The symposium is free and open to the public.
The 2016 Upper Midwest Invasive Species Conference (UMISC) will be held in scenic La Crosse, Wisconsin on October 17-19, 2016 to exchange information on all invasive aquatic and terrestrial plant, animal, insect and pathogen species.
The goal of UMISC is to strengthen management of invasive species, especially prevention, control, and containment. Invasive species research, prevention, and management has seen great strides but much work still must be done. As the 2016 UMISC theme says, sharing innovative and practical solutions are the key to stopping the spread of invasive species in the Midwest and beyond.
