Several organizations and individuals have been working together to plan and initiate a stronger and more coordinated effort to address terrestrial invasive species and sustain natural areas in Minnesota. On March 12th, 2015, numerous individuals and organizations came together - professionals, volunteers, property owners, students and academics - to craft a vision of collective action to benefit the area's natural resources, foster sustainable communities, and control invasive species. This presentation is from that meeting. Check it out and share with people and organizations caring for land and water in Minnesota!
