Abstract Submission open until June 1!
Join us for our 25th anniversary conference! Land managers, researchers, and conservationists will gather for the 25th annual Cal-IPC Symposium amid the granite of the Sierra Nevada! We'll be celebrating in style November 2-5 at the Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite.
Special sessions will focus on park stewardship in honor of the National Park Service's Centennial, including an opening plenary featuring talks by Don Neubacher, the superintendent of Yosemite National Park, and Terri Hogan, the national coordinator for NPS invsive plant programs. Natural resource managers will discuss how invasive plant control can find common ground with protection of cultural resources, fire protection, and wilderness designation. And of course lots of talks and posters on the latest in research and management approaches, discussion groups on hot topics, trainings to help you do your work better, and the opportunity to learn from the amazing network of land stewards in California.
Wednesday features several trainings during the day and the DPR Laws and Regulations session in the evening. The main conference sessions take place all day Thursday and Friday, with our 25th anniversary banquet Thursday night. Field trips on Saturday show off informative invasive plant management efforts in the region.
For attendees with a California applicators license, we will apply for continuing education credits from the Cal. Dept. of Pesticide Regulation: 12 hours of "Other" credit for the main Symposium (plus additional "Other" credit for trainings) and 2 hours of "Laws and Regs." We will also apply for credits from the Nevada Department of Agriculture for those with a Nevada Pest Control License.
A great opportunity to network, learn and celebrate!
