2023 Aquatic and Semi-Aquatic Invasives Control Training

Hairy willow-herb flowering purple

Join a workshop on purple loosestrife, hairy willow-herb, yellow flag iris and other semi-aquatic and aquatic species (identification, biology, control methods, and mapping) presented by Emily McGrath (Colorado Department of Agriculture) and Robert Walters (Colorado Parks and Wildlife) on August 2, 2023 from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Purple loosestrife, hairy willow-herb, yellow flag iris, and other aquatic and semi-aquatic invasive species are destructive noxious weeds that take over wetlands, impair the flow of water, destroy wildlife habitat, and degrade native plant communities. The Front Range Purple Loosestrife group was created in 1993 by Dave Weber, Retired CPW Biologist. This team is still working together today and makes great progress every year controlling purple loosestrife and other aquatic species. Come learn how you can help be part of the solution!

This event counts for Continuing Education Credit! By attending you can receive 1 Laws & Regs CEC and 1 Aquatic CEC.

This event will take place in person in the San Juan Conference Room at the CDA Office (305 Interlocken Parkway, Broomfield, Colorado), there will also be a virtual option. Please register below to let us know how you will be joining us!
