Wildland Weed Field Courses

Looking to hone your wildland weed management skills? Our full-day courses provide expert instruction on core topics for your work. Courses are designed for professional land managers and restoration volunteers alike. Click here to learn more about our past courses.

In 2013, Cal-IPC will not offer any field courses. We will offer a pre-Symposium workshop on Climate Smart Land Management on October 2 at Lake Arrowhead (in the San Bernardino mountains).

Costs and Registration

Regular fees are $155 (Cal-IPC member)/$175 (Non-member) per course. We offer a discounted rate of $55 per course for restoration volunteers, thanks to special grant funding. You qualify as a "restoration volunteer" if weed management is not part of your professional work and you volunteer for an organized restoration effort.

All courses include lunch, snacks and reference material. We have applied to receive "Other" DPR continuing education credits for all courses. Pre-registration is required, as we are not able to handle payments on the day of the course.
