Save the Date: North American Invasive Species Forum Biennial Conference

Save the date!  The North American Invasive Species Forum‘s biennial conference is May 9-11, 2017 in Savannah, Georgia.

The conference aims to encompass “the interests of professionals and organizations involved in invasive species management, research, and regulation in North America. 

The Forum expands on the previous successes of the biennial Weeds Across Borders conferences, bringing together the international invasive species community.  This Forum will include the latest information on policy and cross-border coordination of aquatic and terrestrial invasive species management – including discussions on innovative and effective approaches for collaboration with indigenous and tribal groups, local communities, government agencies, industry, not-for-profit organizations, and other stakeholders – with the objective of outlining a continental Strategic Framework for aquatic and terrestrial invasive species across North America.

In addition to the two-day event, potential opportunities for pre- and post-forum field trips and special workshops are being explored along the Georgia coast.  This Forum is hosted by the North American Invasive Species Network, with the support and guidance of the international steering committee representing the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.   We hope that you will plan to enjoy the beautiful Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens setting.”
