THIRD ANNUAL INVASIVE SPECIES EDUCATION SUMMIT TO TAKE PLACE JUNE 10

May 28, 2014

MADISON -- Education and outreach professionals from around the state will meet June 10 near Eau Claire to discuss ongoing issues and initiatives to combat invasive species.

Topics include updates of local and statewide projects as well as ways to inform, empower and engage communities to take action against invasive species. A keynote talk will focus on "crazy worms," and their impacts on forested regions.

"We would like to invite those interested in helping to slow the spread of invasive species in our state," said Jennifer Feyerherm, invasive species program coordinator. "This is a great opportunity to get up to speed on the latest invasive species issues, collaborate on outreach messages, and share effective education techniques and materials."

The deadline for registration is June 3, 2014 and is free of charge. Those unable to participate in person will be able to watch via webinar broadcast. The summit is hosted by the Wisconsin Invasive Species Council and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
