Get ready for another year of learning together! Registration is now open.

Theme sessions will explore the ways in which we can “get ahead of the curve” by focusing efforts on the early stages of the “invasion curve.” This means employing strategies of prevention and early detection/rapid response – strategies that are simple conceptually but more complex in practice. Speakers will share their work at the local, regional, and statewide levels.

Other sessions will dig into a wide range of topics on invasive plant management and stewardship. We also plan to hold to hold in-person workshops throughout the year, so stay tuned for announcements of events coming up.
