cal-ipc-logo-smlCal-IPC is partnering with agencies and watershed groups to hold four weed management trainings for volunteer stewards around the San Francisco Bay Area this summer. Local experts will provide practical information on the biology and management of invasive plants, with discussion groups to explore specifics on topics of interest.

In the afternoons, join an optional field trip to a local restoration site, or participate in a workshop on using your smart phone to map weed populations using Calflora Observer.

Volunteers are a critical component of the stewardship workforce. Our goal is not only to provide training, but also to help build a network that strengthens our collective efforts. Please help spread the word!The events are free of charge, but we ask that you register online.

Thanks, we look forward to seeing you at the trainings!The California Invasive Plant Council is a nonprofit organization working to protect the state's environment and economy from invasive plants. Cal-IPC coordinates regional conservation, trains land stewards, and advocates for science-based public policy. More at
