Innovations in Invasive Species Management Conference

Innovations in Invasive Species Management Conference
We invite you to join us for the first Innovations in Invasive Species Management Conference and Workshop to be held in Nashville, TN December 13-15th, 2017 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel.  Click below for the conference website. 

This year’s meeting will be co-hosted by the National Military Fish and Wildlife Association’s Invasive Species Working Group, the Tennessee Invasive Plant Council, the Southeast Exotic Pest Plant Council, the National Association of Invasive Plant Councils and Invasive Plant Control, Inc.

Registration-   To register please also go to the conference website Innovations in Invasive Species Management Website  and go to the registration page to register for the meeting.   

Hotel-  I also strongly encourage you to make your hotel reservations now.  The hotels in Nashville fill up quickly in December and there are a limited number of rooms reserved at the federal per diem rate for our meeting.  It’s definitely worth staying at the resort if feasible as they do a great job decorating the hotel during the holidays.  Reservations for the Opryland Hotel at the Conference Per Diem Rate can be made by clicking here
