Invasive Species Solutions: When science, policy, and stewardship converge
November 14, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Our local lands and waters – and the life they support – are among our region’s most valuable assets. These special places face many threats, including the problematic spread of invasive species. In recent years, the BiodiverseCity St. Louis network of organizations and individuals have joined forces to activate the region in tackling this problem hands-on, through the Honeysuckle Sweep for Healthy Habitats citizen stewardship campaign. This campaign occurs March 1-31 and November 1-30 each year. As part of the November campaign, a trio of field experts have been invited to St. Louis to share the science of invasion biology, underscore the urgent need to manage existing and emerging invasive species, highlight the role citizens can play in changing policy to preserve biodiversity, and how sustained stewardship can restore and heal landscapes and whole communities.
