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 hosted workshops across the state in 2019. Workshops addressed topics such as:

  • Identification of common roadside invasive plants
  • How to apply management methods to optimize control and minimize cost
  • Tools and tips for mapping invasive plants within your jurisdiction
  • Integrating management with pollinator habitat efforts

Each workshop also included a bus tour to large- and small-scale demonstration plots that demonstrate:

  • Broadcast and spot herbicide applications
  • Mowing timing and frequency
  • Use of plant growth regulators to reduce mowing frequency

We have created a one page factsheet to explain the importance of right of way invasive species management. It can be found here.
