IL- Invasive and weedy species management workshops scheduled for August

http://www.eastdubuqueregister.com/article.cfm?StoryID=250858
Info on the workshop:
Quote:
Prairie Works Inc., the source for ecological and landscape services in northwest Illinois, is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a series of workshops on invasive and weedy species management in cooperation with the Jo Daviess Conservation Foundation (JDCF).

The series is designed to provide education about the types and eradication of invasive and weedy species that inhabit our area, especially to individuals interested in volunteering to maintain JDCF's public use sites. Anyone wishing to donate 10 hours of volunteer work to JDCF over the next year can attend the series at no charge. Others are welcome at a cost of $40 per person.

The first session will be held at 2 p.m. on Aug. 22 at the Galena Adventure Center located next to Fever River Outfitters just before the floodgates in downtown Galena.

It will be a classroom setting featuring a presentation by Cory Ritterbusch of Prairie Works on invasive species management.

The following sessions will be held outdoors over the course of several months led by expert staff from both Prairie Works and JDCF. Participants will get hands on training in dealing with a variety of species such as thistles, reed canary grass, sweet clover, garlic mustard, and poison parsnip. A winter session will focus on tree species and forest management. Please reserve your spot by August 14 to the JDFC office at 815-858-9100 or info@jdcf.org.

Prairie Works Inc., ecological restoration and sustainable landscaping, works to restore natural areas in the Tri-State region including: prairie restoration, woodland and savanna restoration, bio-engineered erosion control, invasive species control, and landscaping through the use of native plants. Cory Ritterbusch, owner of Prairie Works, Inc. utilizes 12 years of invasive plant control experience and is the Jo Daviess County noxious weed commissioner.

For $40 this is a good value.

Forgoing the above fee and agreeing to 10 hours of volunteer work to JDCF- the best value.
