Cal-IPC Training Video
Cal-IPC produced a 42-minute training video based on our Best Management Practices manuals, covering movement, disturbance, planning and awareness for land managers and utility/transportation corridor managers.
2012 Workshop Video
Below, we share videos from a 2012 workshop in Truckee, sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, California Department of Food and Agriculture, UC Cooperative Extension, and the California Invasive Plant Council. Funding was provided by the U.S. Forest Service and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Washing work vehicles properly is one way to prevent the spread of invasive plants.

Instructions for viewing these videos:
You may notice five icons on the upper right of the screen. The first icon, the four inward arrows turns the screen into full screen, the second icon turns it into a picture in a picture, the third icon makes it into a side by side picture, the next icon makes it a single picture. To get back to the side by side picture mode, hit the third icon down and you’ll get back to the side by side picture. You will also need to hit the swap button to make the slide bigger and the presenter smaller, or visa versa, but that’s up to you.
