Workshop Information:

Invasive plants pose a costly challenge to roadside vegetation managers. A statewide partnership among university, non-profit, state agency, and private industry groups is hosting FREE workshops across the state in 2019.

  • Identification of common roadside invasive plants
  • How to apply management methods to optimize control and minimize cost
