    Invasive Exotic Species ID and Control Workshop
    The workshop is provided by Apalachicola Regional Stewardship Alliance and Florida Forest Stewardship program, and will be held at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve Training Center, 108 Island Drive, Eastpoint, FL 32328. 
    Many exotic plants are invasive weeds that spread quickly. The rapid and effective dispersal characteristics of these invaders make them extremely difficult to eliminate or manage. This workshop will focus on some of the more common and troublesome invasive exotic plants and animals in this region and current strategies to control them.  A $10 fee covers lunch and materials. Please register on-line at http://www.gulfalliancetraining.org/detail.aspx?Id=118. You can also reserve a space by contacting Anita Grove at the Reserve at (850) 670-7708, Anita.Grove@dep.state.fl.us.
    Pesticide Applicator and Forestry Continuing Education Credits are pending. Please share this announcement with others who may be interested.
