Part 3 The Invasive Plant Issue and Invasive Plant Identification

An overview of the topic of invasive plants, focusing on why we should be concerned about them and enhancing your ability to readily identify invasive plants as well as their look-alikes. The work of the Massachusetts Invasive Plant Advisory Group, including its strategies, recommendations, and the recently released Early Detection/Rapid Response Priority List document, will be discussed.

This workshop is Session A3 of the Invasive Plant Certification Program.

In the last several years, there has been growing interest in invasive plants and their management. While turf and landscape professionals might be very proficient in the development of a weed management program for turf and/or landscape, invasive plant management often reveals many new and unique challenges to these professionals. This 4-day program is intended to help participants meet these challenges when attempting to develop an invasive plant management program as part of their business. A certificate in Invasive Plant Management may be obtained by attending all four sessions and obtaining a passing grade on each. To earn the certificate, sessions A1 - A3 can be taken in any order, but must be taken prior to Session B, Developing an Invasive Plant Management Program. Attendees are encouraged to take all four sessions in one season to get the most out of the information. All sessions may also be taken individually.


The cost is $90, $81/person for a group of three or more registrations from the same company (10% discount). Online registrations include a nominal processing fee.
