Early Detection slows the spread of invasive species into new areas and offers the best chance of eradicating these pests.  The Capital/ Mohawk PRISM presents a special all-day seminar, focused on enhancing the early detection of invasive plant pests tht threaten New York's agriculture, nurseries, home landscapes and natural areas.

Participation will require a commitment to scouting for and submitting samples of potential pests covered during the training. 

The seminar is sponsored by the USDA Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and Cornell University.

Add to your 2015 invasive species calendars: the NY Invasive Species Research Institute and the NY Invasive Species Clearinghouse are pleased to announce the dates for the 9th Annual Invasive Species In-Service. This year’s workshop will be held on the Cornell University campus Tuesday through Thursday, November 3 - 5, 2015.

This is YOUR workshop, not ours, so put your thinking caps on and send us some great agenda ideas (we will be issuing a call for topics in a couple months, but early entries are always welcome). Last year we had one of the best workshops ever with the largest group of attendees yet! And it was because of you.

The workshop is part of the 2015 Cornell Cooperative Extension Agriculture & Food In-service.
