The pandemic situation has understandably resulted in the cancellation and/or postponement of in-person events in Provincial and National parks and elsewhere in the Biosphere. While some natural areas may still be accessible to people to enjoy and find some respite in during this challenging time, please remember to follow the Government of Alberta’s requirements and restrictions for mandatory isolation, gathering restrictions and how you can help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Take care and stay safe.
Tackling Invasive Plants Through Community Engagement - Workshop #2
9:00 am - 11:00 am
Invasive plants are a common and troublesome issue throughout the Beaver Hills region. The Beaver Hills Biosphere and Elk Island National Park are engaging the community on this issue and seeking input from people that will contribute to a collaborative approach to identify, manage and share best practices to tackle invasive plants on a regional scale within the Biosphere.
In this second workshop, join hosts Beaver Hills Biosphere and Elk Island National Park, along with presenters Pinette Robinson (Elk Island National Park), Mike Bates (Beaver County) and Daryl Wright (Seed 2 Leaf Environmental Consulting) for this two-hour session during which they will present their organizations' perspectives and engage with participants to:
- Share applied knowledge and management options.
- Talk about identification and tracking of the main species of concern.
- Discuss options for working together, including what does a Community of Practice and the summer field session look like in a pandemic.
