MPF Webinar: Invasive Plant ID and Control Methods

May 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm CDT

Green field of prairie invasive plant Sericea lespedeza

Invasive plants can be found everywhere in Missouri, from urban backyards to sprawling pastures. This webinar will focus on some of the most common invasives that can be found across the state, how to distinguish them from other plants, and what control strategies can be used on them. The fundamentals of integrative pest management (IPM) will be discussed to give attendees the most options for controlling invasive species.

Valarie Kurre (Repp) is the Coordinator of the Scenic Rivers Invasive Species Partnership (SRISP), the first cooperative invasive species management area established in the state. The SRISP focuses on combining invasive species management efforts from public land managers and private landowners in the scenic rivers region in Southern Missouri to make the biggest impact or reducing invasive plants in the area. Valarie has worked in the field of invasive species management and botany for four years throughout Southern Missouri completing restoration work on a variety of habitats from glades, forested land, and riparian areas. Valarie is also a member of the Missouri Invasive Plant Council, administered by the Missouri Prairie Foundation.

The webinar, to be held via Zoom, will include a presentation and a question and answer session. The webinar will be recorded, and sent to all registrants, as well as posted to our YouTube channel.

Cost: Free
