Default WI- Invasive Plant Symposium: MIPN/IPAW (Dec. 14 and 15, 2011)

Invasive Plant Symposium: MIPN/IPAW (Dec. 14 and 15, 2011). Milwaukee

The Midwest Invasive Plant Network (MIPN) and the Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin (IPAW) are co-hosting a two-day Invasive Plant Symposium at the North Central Weed Science Society Conference on Dec. 14 & 15 in Milwaukee, WI. We have a fantastic program full of great information on the science and management of invasive species (see attached program). We hope you will join us.

To register for the symposium, visit Welcome to the North Central Weed Science Society "Invasive Plant Symposium". Registration for both days is $150. Registration for Dec. 15 only is $100.

This symposium will focus on invasive plants in natural areas, and will be co-hosted by the North Central Weed Science Society, the Midwest Invasive Plant Network, and the Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin. The symposium will start off with a plenary session on Wednesday morning and will include several concurrent sessions on a broad array of topics, including managing invasive plants in urban areas, assessing risk of invasive plant species, new resources to aid in early detection, developing a successful Cooperative Weed Management Area, and how to manage some of the most problematic invasive plants. The Symposium will end on Thursday afternoon.

"Green Fire" Narrator to Speak at Illinois Wesleyan University

Lecture Series - John Wesley Powell Audubon is a Chapter of National Audubon Society, Inc.

Thursday, November 3, at 7:00 p.m. in CNS C101. JWP Audubon is pleased to host Dr. Curt Meine. His talk is titled, “From Wild Lands to Working Lands to Urban Lands: Connecting Conservation Across the Landscape.” In “The Land Ethic,” his classic statement of conservation philosophy, Aldo Leopold argued that our ethical framework must expand to include the land “as a community to which we belong.” He further stated that “nothing so important as an ethic is ever written... It evolves in the minds of a thinking community.” In this presentation, conservation biologist and environmental historian Dr. Curt Meine explores the continuing relevance and evolution of the land ethic across the landscape, making the connections that underlie our contemporary commitment to sustainability. Dr. Meine, who serves as the on-screen guide in the Green Fire documentary, is Director for Conservation Biology and History with the Center for Humans and Nature, senior fellow with the Aldo Leopold Foundation, research associate with the International Crane Foundation, and associate adjunct professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This talk is co-sponsored by the IWU Ames Library, the IWU Biology Department, and the IWU Environmental Studies program.
