Thursday, November 2, 2017 - 4:00pm
Hike Location: 
NEW Center, South Conference Room

In this end-of-season indoor presentation, Greg Norwood, Invasive Species Coordinator, Michigan DNR - Wildlife Division, will lead a discussion of emerging conservation challenges related to terrestrial invasive species and disease issues, such as Japanese stiltgrass and oak wilt, and how new collaborations such as Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas and other partnerships can help us be poised to take on these management issues. The presentation and discussion will address important questions for public conservation land managers such as: How much to invest in prevention off conservation land versus control on public lands? How do we communicate with those we serve about allocating resources to prevention versus control? How can the principles of ecological restoration help us achieve better conservation outcomes for invasive species projects?.
