Registration is open for the 2017 joint Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council / Society for Ecological Restoration, Mid-Atlantic Chapter conference, Invasion Biology: Paths to Conservation and Restoration Success.
You can find the full agenda at that link as well.
We have held the price to the same as in 2015, at $210 for the full conference ($100 for students with ID).
Lodging is available for $40 per night in the Juniata College dormitory.
Registration includes continental breakfast and lunch on Aug 1 & 2, coffee at break times, and appetizers during the poster session.
We are working on securing credits from ASLA, and ISA, and have applied for pesticide licensing CEUs from all states in the mid-Atlantic.
For the afternoon field session on Day 2, Invasive Plant Control Inc. will lead a demonstration of tools, equipment and treatment methods for common invasive plants, and participants may also tour a riparian restoration site with the local watershed conservation district manager. The site includes invasive plant management in a wetland area, restoration with native plants, and significant tree canopy loss due to the emerald ash borer.
A limited number of scholarships are available for students to offset the cost of the conference (but not travel and lodging). Students can apply for scholarships by filling out this form. Scholarships are sponsored by Invasive Plant Control Inc., and Pepco. Other sponsorship and vendor opportunities are still available, see attached letter.
