Conference Agenda

Join DISC for the 2016 Annual Meeting and Conference!


This year’s Delaware Invasive Species Council’s annual meeting will explore how land and natural resource managers, conservationists, and others that want their voices heard are keeping up with the fight on the invasive species by voting them out!  The annual meeting covers a full range of invasive species, including aquatic and terrestrial plants, animals and pathogens that impact native species and threaten Delaware’s natural resources, economy, and quality of life.  Registration opens at 8:30 am and the conference will kick off at 9:00 am. Lunch is included in registration fee.


Wednesday, October 19, 2016


The conference will be held at the Delaware Agriculture Museum in Dover, Delaware. This year we have reserved more space within the facility to allow for expansion of this event with additional sessions and more dynamic networking opportunities.
