News from the Native Plant Society
Dear colleagues, I know that this may not be accurate but I often find that native plant enthusiasts are also concerned about exotic weed invasions. I have been working with some colleagues to develop a survey of weed priorities for natural areas but I need to improve circulation and participation. Feel free to complete the survey yourself but can you help me circulate this survey among land managers and weed control folks in Arizona? This survey has been developed for Arizona specifically with the goal of getting broader input into the prioritization of weeds and which should be targets of biological control.
Please circulate the following link to stakeholders in Arizona who are responsible for weed management or have knowledge/experience of weed impacts first-hand (e.g. county-level weed managers, land management agencies, individual landholders, weed ecologists). All surveys should be completed by 22-Feb-2017. The survey is designed to short as well as enable each person to forward the link on to others as well. Here is the link:
