MoIP (formerly Missouri Invasive Exotic Plant Species Task Force) premiered its vision and organized a tract on invasive species at the Missouri Natural Resources Conference on February 4, 2016.
Invasive species cause problems for all facets of land management. During this workshop, experts presented information about the next potential threats and best management practices to reduce/control populations of existing and upcoming species.
