Cal-IPC Symposium

California Invasive Plant Council
October 24th, 2017 to October 27th, 2017
Palm Springs, CA

Land managers, researchers, and conservationists will gather for the 26th annual Cal-IPC Symposium in Palm Springs.

They'll have the latest in invasive plant biology and management, with talks, posters, trainings, discussion groups and field trips on projects addressing invasive plants from riparian, grassland, mountain, coastal, and aquatic/wetland habitats. Attendees will share information about effective tools, relevant research, non-chemical management approaches as well as the latest on herbicides. The theme is "Working Across Boundaries," and they are organizing special sessions on the importance of engaging diverse communities, ways to incorporate traditional ecological knowledge into management, and the roles botanic gardens can play in addressing invasive plants.
Tuesday features two trainings during the day and the DPR Laws & Regulations session in the evening. The main conference sessions take place all day Wednesday and Thursday, with the awards banquet Wednesday night. Field trips on Friday show off informative invasive plant management efforts in the region.
