Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council 2017 Conference (SEMINAR IS FULL)
This year's conference is co-hosted by the Society for Ecological Restoration, Mid-Atlantic Chapter and the Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council.

Tuesday, August 1 & Wednesday, August 2, 2017- Juniata College, Huntingdon, PA.

MAIPC and SER-Mid Atlantic have joined forces to present a two-day conference at Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania. The biology and ecology of invasive plants are a driving factor in their impacts on natural areas, while past disturbance, land use, soils and other factors can strongly influence the success of restoration efforts. We will explore a variety of topics relating to invasion biology and restoration: impacts of invasive plants on whole ecosystems, invasive plant management partnerships at multiple spatial scales, the news in latest biocontrol, and melding restoration with working landscapes. Additionally, we will present two rapid-fire sessions of short, 7-minute talks, an evening poster pub, and field trips to local restoration sites. Plenty of time will be available for questions, discussion, and networking with speakers and attendees. We invite you to join us for this 9th Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council Conference. It will be an exciting and informative two-day meeting.

Who Should Attend:
Managers of parks, preserves, conservation districts and other natural areas, invasive plant management and restoration specialists, researchers, students, gardeners, landscape architects, managers of botanical gardens and nurseries, extension agents, environmental educators, garden writers, recreational land managers, and others interested in learning more about invasive plants, biodiversity and habitat restoration.

Tuesday, August 1 & Wednesday, August 2, 2017- Juniata College, Huntingdon, PA
