The Connecticut Invasive Plant Working Group (CIPWG) 2020 VIRTUAL Invasive Plant Symposium will be held on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. The theme of the symposium is: Realistic Solutions to Managing Invasive Plants. Symposium information can be found on the CIPWG website at https://cipwg.uconn.edu/2020-symposium/.
We need your help with our reporting on the work of CIPWG and all that we’ve accomplished over the course of this year. With the transition of responsibility to the new co-chairs and UConn staff since Donna Ellis’ retirement, we have collected less reports of activity than in past years. We need this information for reporting purposes, so please take a moment to help!
We created a new, easier format for reporting. Please report any of your CIPWG/invasive plant activity since January 2019 – lectures, invasive plant management events, educational outreach, workshops taught, etc.
