GLIN==> MN Invasive Species Conference



Minnesota Invasive Species Conference 2008:
Acting Locally to Protect Our Legendary Lands and Waters

October 26-29, 2008
Duluth Entertainment Convention Center

This first annual statewide conference on invasive species will be held to encourage exchange of information on topics relating to both aquatic and terrestrial invasive species. The conference is designed to strengthen awareness of invasive species issues at the local level, as well as promote local prevention and management activities. If you're a researcher, land manager, natural resource professional, educator, student, landscaper, nursery, agricultural or forestry professional, environmental specialist, lake association member, or agency and non-governmental organization employee, this conference is for you!

Pre-conference workshops for the general public and professionals will be held Sunday, Oct. 26, for nominal fees. They include terrestrial topics such as earthworms and gypsy moths, and aquatic topics such as lake vegetation management.

Conference co-chairs are the Minnesota Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society and Minnesota Sea Grant, and it is hosted by the Minnesota Invasive Species Council.
