The Governor’s Summit on Invasive Species, Helena MT
The Governor's Summit on Invasive Species
Assessing the Past Strategizing for the Future
Please join the Montana Invasive Species Advisory Council (MISAC) April 12-13, 2016 for an in-depth dialogue and examination of prevention, detection, rapid response, and management of invasive species in Montana.
In 2015, MISAC sponsored program assessments for taxonomic groups (aquatic, terrestrial, animal, pest) within the state to evaluate and identify gaps in existing efforts. The Summit will serve as a platform for invasive species managers, county leaders, local and tribal governments, private landowners, lake association members, conservation districts, angling groups and others who work at the local level to review assessment findings, suggest actions, provide the latest science, and develop a shared invasive species strategy for the state.
This two day-event will also feature national and state leaders and technical experts who provide on-the-ground applied science and actions to lower the risk of invasive species spread. Please join us for this important and timely collaboration to learn and plan together for effective, local invasive species prevention in Montana. Click here for the agenda.
