This workshop is an introduction to identification and control of invasive, non-native pest plants.

The class will also focus on habitat restoration through management and control of invasive plants. A variety of control methods will be outlined, including description of tools, techniques, and detailed strategies for some of the high-priority species. This course class will include a portion of outdoor field study.
