WI First Detector Network - Invasive Species Workshop

  • Lussier Family Heritage Center 3101 Lake Farm Road Madison, WI, 53711 United States (map)

Join Mark Renz and Anne Pearce from UW Extension and the Wisconsin First Detector Network for an invasive species workshop. In this workshop, participants will practice identification of several invasive species and learn about helpful identification resources. In addition, they will be introduced to the Great Lakes Early Detection Network (GLEDN) smartphone app, which allows anyone to map and monitor invasive species- a great tool for volunteers working in Dane County Parks! 

Participants will also learn more about specific management techniques for some of our most common invasive species in our area, including recommendations for selecting herbicides.
