Invasive plant, animal and insects are the world’s second biggest threat to biodiversity after habitat loss. In Central Illinois, the threats range from bush honeysuckle, which threaten native oak forests, to Asian carp, which crowd Illinois waterways. Attend Stop the Spread this April and learn what steps you can take during Invasive Species Awareness Month with University of Illinois Extension.
Join the Glacier’s Edge Master Naturalists for their annual Carolyn Mason Education Day to take action on invasive species. Hear from four speakers on threats from invasive plants, animals, fish and insects and learn about scientifically supported control methods including a hands-on workshop to build an herbicide applicator.
Cost: The cost for the day is $20, which includes lunch. The hands-on herbicide applicator session is free, but costs an additional $15 if attendees want to make an applicator to take home.
Registration: Register in advance by April 1 through the online registration form or call the Macon County Extension Office at the number provided.
