Invasive Species Webinar


May 17, 2022 | 10AM - 11AM EST


Virtual via Webex

This webinar was approved for 0.1 CEU units.

Thank you to all that joined us with Stephanie Schuck, Executive Director of State of Indiana Cooperative Invasives Management (SICIM), as she discussed how the SICIM is leading the Indiana Invasives Initiative (III). She explained the negative effects of invasive species and how the III is using partnerships and grassroots efforts to engage communities to manage for invasive species. She also went over some common invasives and new ones to look out for, as well as gave time for discussion on current management techniques and how we can partner together to get more done.

Indiana Invasives Initiative

In late 2017, Southern Indiana Cooperative Invasives Management (SICIM) and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) entered into a contribution agreement for the purpose of developing local Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs) throughout Indiana. Both SICIM and the NRCS have been working for many years to combat invasive plants and raise public awareness of the devastation being caused by these non-native pests, and both have come to the realization that we will not begin to make much headway until the problem is addressed at the local level by local people using local resources.
