Garlic Mustard PlantSustainable Forests Roundtable will be hosting a Invasive Plant Best Management Practices webinar. Best Management Practices (BMP) help you identify effective and realistic practices that can be integrated into any behavior. Whether you’re a gardener, a landowner, a forester or a logger, the movement of invasive species is always a concern. A BMP can be as simple as cleaning your shoes or as complex as pressure washing your bulldozer. Regardless of your practice, the goal is always to minimize the spread of invasive species.

Learn how to create best management practices that help identify and minimize the spread of invasive species. The presenters for the webinar are Bernie Williams, Invasive Plants and Earthworms Outreach Specialist, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources; Brad Herrick, Ecologist and Research Manager, University of Wisconsin Arboretum; and Judy Kingsbury, Volunteer Coordinator, University of Wisconsin Arboretum.
