Close the Door on Invasive Species by Attending Workshops

The day before the Minnesota Invasive Species Conference 2008 begins in
Duluth, organizers are offering public workshops on Sunday, October 26.
Entitled "Closing the Door on Invasive Species," these training and
informational sessions held at the Duluth Entertainment Convention
Center are designed for cabin, woodland and lakeshore owners, land
managers, service providers, educators, students, and other
professionals.

The presentations will emphasize applied management and prevention
measures to protect woodland, shoreland, and wetland resources from
invasive species. Topics range from the emerald ash borer and gypsy
moths to lake vegetation management plans.

Presenters include experts from University of Minnesota Extension, the
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Sea Grant programs in
Michigan and Minnesota, several consultants, and other organizations.

Costs vary per workshop, ranging from $10 to $30. For information and
registration forms, visit http://www.minnesotaswcs.org/Invasives.htm or
contact conference administrator Nancy Herselius at info@mnisc.org or
(515) 480-2420.
