MIPN is working in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, Region 9, to host a short series of webinars on the restoration of sites invaded with problem plants. The goal of this series is for restoration experts to share their knowledge, strategies, and tips to help others escape the cycle of endless mowing, pulling and/or spraying for invasives and to adopt practices that produce better long-term results in terms of restoring biodiversity and preventing re-establishment of invasive plants. We will be making frequent updates to this page as dates are announced. To receive timely announcements, please either join MIPN as a member, or sign up for our regional listservRegistration for our second webinar (February 13th - Canada thistle focus) is now open - see below!
