Cal-IPC’s Annual Photo Contest winners

Congrats to the winners of the 2019 Annual Photo Contest! It’s a great way to share your field work, and helps Cal-IPC tell the story of invasive plants and weed management.

Symposium Lodging & Travel

We stayed 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.
