CALIPC Webinars on Invasive Species

June 3rd, 2019 to June 5th, 2019

Each day from June 3 to June 7, tune in to the Lunchtime Webinars on Invasive Species, organized by the University of California Cooperative Extension and the nonprofit California Invasive Plant Council. 

During the first part of the week, the webinars will cover a range of organisms, from killer algae and incestuous beetles to “rodents of unusual size.”  Later in the week, it’s Weeds-A-Palooza, with talks focusing on invasive plants. The webinar schedule includes:

  • Monday, June 3: “How they get here: Aquatic invasive species being moved around the world” | Sabrina Drill, Natural Resources Advisor, UC Cooperative Extension
  • Tuesday, June 4: “What’s killing California’s trees? Shot hole borers, palm weevils and the rest” | Beatriz Nobua-Behrmann, Urban Forestry and Natural Resources Advisor, UC Cooperative Extension
  • Wednesday, June 5: “Rodents of unusual size: Nutria in the Delta” | Valerie Cook-Fletcher, Nutria Eradication Incident Commander, Cal. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife
