Tools and Techniques for Mapping,
Managing and Mending Invaded Lands

August 3 & 4, 2011 at the National Conservation Training Center
in Shepherdstown, West Virginia

Thank you to our sponsors, speakers and attendees for another successful conference!

Invaded landscapes can be daunting to the point of complete hopelessness. It can be nearly impossible to imagine that a degraded forest, wetland, or grassland dominated by invasive plants could ever be returned to a natural habitat. However, because most of us have an irrepressible sense of optimism and are stimulated by a challenge, a tiny germ of hope soon becomes our mission to take action and we are off and running! That's when the full weight of the problem hits us - restoring a highly invaded landscape is a huge, complex and long-term undertaking that can be very costly.

If you find yourself in this position, what can you do? This eighth Mid-Atlantic conference provided attendees with the tools needed to accomplish objectives. Attendees learned how to map the invasive species on your site, develop a site plan, select appropriate control methods, and ultimately, achieve restoration to a site dominated by suitable native plant species.
