Zoom Presentation: Why Invasive Plants Matter 9/15/20

Why Invasive Plants Matter? Evolution, Speciation and Management Strategies for Maintaining Biodiversity – September 15, 2020 at 7:30pm

Jason M. Mills, M.S., Restoration Program Manager, Sonoma Ecology Center

This presentation will cover some of the bigger picture implications of invasive species and their impact on native ecosystems. We will then dive into some examples of especially problematic species, as well as some of the challenges facing local ecological communities in peril. Specific noxious weed prioritization and strategic methodology for controls will also be discussed. A topic of paramount significance will be to work towards closing the gap between those with advanced botanical skills and those tasked with performing the often strenuous work. Opportunities for collaboration and ways to get involved with active stewardship efforts in order to maximize biodiversity and resources will be the underlying goal of the talk.
