SEWISC 2017 Annual Symposium

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

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.
