Payment and registration required.
MAIPC and SER-Mid Atlantic have joined forces to present a two-day conference at Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. The biology and ecology of invasive plants are a driving factor in their impacts on natural areas, while past disturbance, land use, soils and other factors can strongly influence the success of restoration efforts. We will explore a variety of topics relating to invasion biology and restoration: impacts of invasive plants on whole ecosystems, invasive plant management partnerships at multiple spatial scales, the news in latest biocontrol, and melding restoration with working landscapes. Additionally, we will present two rapid-fire sessions of short, 7-minute talks, an evening poster pub, and field trips to local restoration sites. Plenty of time will be available for questions, discussion, and networking with speakers and attendees. We invite you to join us for this 9th Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council Conference. It will be an exciting and informative two-day meeting.
