Join us at a workshop offered on June 24, 2016 through the Vermont Invasive Patrollers (VIP). VIP workshops cover such fundamentals as the difference between native, exotic, nuisance and invasive species; how invasive species are introduced and established; how to differentiate native aquatic plants and animals from their invasive lookalikes (plants will be emphasized); and how to conduct surveys for aquatic invasive species in lakes and ponds.
2016 Workshop Schedule: Friday, June 24th, 1:00-3:30 PM
VIP Workshop, North Country Career Center, Room 380 First Floor, 209 Veterans Ave, Newport
The 2.5-hour VIP workshop will include classroom time and a site visit to view starry stonewort, a new to Vermont invasive macro algae.
Interested participants are encouraged to join our statewide network of volunteers who survey for aquatic invasive species in their favorite lake or pond.
