Roadside Invasive Vegetation Workshops

Invasive plants pose a costly challenge to roadside vegetation managers. A statewide partnership among university, non-profit, state agency, and private industry groups is hosting FREE workshops across the state in 2019. Workshops are open to all people interested in roadside vegetation management and will address topics such as:

  • Identification of common roadside invasive plants
  • How to apply management methods to optimize control and minimize cost
  • Tools and tips for mapping invasive plants within your jurisdiction
  • Integrating management with pollinator habitat efforts

Each workshop will also include bus tours (free) to large- and small-scale demonstration plots that demonstrate:

  • Broadcast and spot herbicide applications
  • Mowing timing and frequency
  • Use of plant growth regulators to reduce mowing frequency

The dates and locations for the upcoming workshops are:

  • July 23, 2019 – Amherst, Wisconsin
  • July 25, 2019 – Prairie Du Sac, Wisconsin
  • August 13, 2019 – Greenleaf, Wisconsin

Workshops are FREE, but registration is required. See our calendar for more information.
