This special one-day conference, held in conjunction with Cal-IPC's 24th Symposium, will explore synergies between the evolving worlds of habitat conservation planning and landscape-level invasive plant management. Success stories from regions across the state will set the stage for discussing how tomorrow's planning can most effectively support future efforts to stop the spread of wildland weeds.
With HCPs, NCCPs, MSCPs, RAMP, and now the Strategic Growth Council's statewide effort for integrated regional planning - how will evolving planning efforts mesh? Given new tools for designing effective landscape-level invasive plant management projects, how can we move beyond site-specific mitigation to distributed mitigation that takes advantage of key early-eradication opportunities? Join us in setting a course to address this important confluence of challenges.
The conference program overlaps partially with the Symposium program in order to capitalize on the potential for cross-fertilization between land managers, researchers and planners. And the evening social, with raffle, auction, and awards is not to be missed!
