NH Invasives Academy: Now Accepting Applications

UNH Cooperative Extension will host the inaugural NH Invasives Academy, a 2-day workshop focused on invasive plants on September 27-28 at the Seacoast Science Center in Rye.

At this special two-day workshop focused on invasive plants, up to 40 attendees will have the opportunity to attend presentations, participate in hands-on activities, learn from colleagues, experts, and each other, and attend field trips covering ecological considerations and management strategies for invasive plants in New Hampshire. Instruction for the Academy will be provided by a diverse group of agency, academic, non-profit, and private industry partners. Attendees will learn tools and techniques to improve their management plans and activities. The Academy is designed for those with a strong interest and some experience in natural resources stewardship, including foresters, land trust staff, natural resource professionals, private landowners, and active community volunteers. In exchange for the 2-day training, participants agree to return to their New Hampshire communities and contribute 20 hours of time sharing information learned with landowners, colleagues, clients or other members of their community. A $65 registration fee partially covers meals, transportation, and materials. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through September 15th, with application review beginning on August 1st.
