FNAI Invasive Exotic Plant Workshop: How to Distinguish the Weeds From The Native Look-Alikes
Mark your calendars for this great training opportunity
The Florida Natural Areas Inventory, in collaboration with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, is hosting a one day workshop to provide training on the identification of approximately 50 species of invasive exotic plants and their native look-alike species. There are two trainings scheduled.
The first will be held in Southeast Florida on February 1, 2017 at the Savannas Preserve State Park: https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Savannas in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
The second training will be held in Central Florida on February 2, 2017 at the Circle B Bar Preserve in Polk County: http://www.polknature.com/explore/circle-b/?section
The training will primarily take place in a classroom style setting, and is intended primarily for conservation land managers and invasive plant contractors with the purpose of highlighting the similarities and differences between plants that are occasionally confused.
CEU credits have been requested for these trainings. You are welcome to bring specimens to the workshop for identification if you wish.
Registration for these workshops will be made available in the next several weeks.
