Join us in Riverside!

Gather with colleagues from across the state to network, learn, and celebrate our hard work. We will be meeting at the Riverside Convention Center and staying at the historic Mission Inn. Both are located in downtown Riverside, steps away from restaurants and entertainment. Add to your conference with Tuesday training sessions or Friday field trips to explore invasive plant management projects and restoration efforts in the region.

Symposium Auction & Raffle

There were great items up for grabs at the silent auction & raffle in 2018! Thanks to the generosity of our attendees, we raised $13,000 for the Cal-IPC general fund. We look forward to another lively event in 2019.

Enter Cal-IPC’s Annual Photo Contest! Deadline Sept. 1

The Annual Photo Contest is a great way to share your field work, and helps Cal-IPC tell the story of invasive plants and weed management. Post your photos by Sept. 1, and cast your vote at the Symposium.

Symposium Lodging & Travel

We have arranged for room blocks at two hotels in Riverside, both within 1 block of The Riverside Convention Center. There are a limited number of rooms available at the elegant Mission Inn Hotel and Spa, a national historic landmark. Built in 1876 in the grand style of a Spanish Mission, the hotel rooms have unique architectural pieces such as fireplaces, window seats, built in cabinets, and small reading nooks. Additional rooms are available for a group rate at the Hyatt Place. See our Lodging page for phone numbers and codes.
