New Invaders Headed Our Way
This year’s guest speakers will share examples of problematic invasive species which are invading the counties just south of our region. Early detection, identification and prompt best management techniques will keep these traveling aggressors from establishing in Wisconsin.
Chris Evans of the Illinois Wildlife Action Plan - Invasive Species Campaign will present: Moving on up: Potential new invaders to Wisconsin from farther south
Kurt Dreisilker, of the Morton Arboretum will present: How can a public garden shed light on plant invasions?
The symposium is free and open to the public.
