2017 Annual Education Symposium

10th Annual Symposium

  Nasty Aquatic Plant & Animal Species: Got ‘em? Get ‘em!

2017 Raffle 1024x615

Ruth Marshall 2017 926x1024


As usual, our 10th Annual Education Symposium was informative and fun!  This year’s guest speakers, Paul Skawinski and Brad Steckart, shared information regarding exotic aquatic plant and animal species which are invading our region. Early detection, identification and prompt best management techniques will reduce the negative impacts of these unwelcomed invaders.  Symposium attendees celebrated this year’s Sweat Equity Award Winner, Ruth Marshall who diligently strives to educate government officials and the public on invasive plant species issues.  Everyone enjoyed local food refreshments and fifteen lucky raffle winners returned home with over $2,800 in donated prizes! Mark your calendars for the 11th Annual Education Symposium: November 14, 2018!
