Upcoming Cal-IPC Field Courses for Southern California

Looking to hone your wildland weed management skills? Cal-IPC is offering full-day courses that provide expert instruction on core topics for your work. Courses are designed for professional land managers and restoration volunteers newcomers and old-timers, professionals and committed volunteers alike.

Field Course Schedule:

San Diego: (http://www.cal-ipc.org/fieldcourses/index.php#SanDiego)
Sycamore Canyon/ Goodan Ranch Open Space
  April 1 - Control Methods
  April 2 - Revegetation Techniques

Visalia: (http://www.cal-ipc.org/fieldcourses/index.php#visalia)
Kaweah Oaks Preserve, Sequoia Riverlands Trust
  October 7 - Advanced Herbicide Control Methods NEW!

Pasadena: (http://www.cal-ipc.org/fieldcourses/index.php#pasadena)
Audubon Center at Debs Park
  November 4 - Control Methods
  November 5 - Mapping


Regular fees are $145 (Cal-IPC member)/$165 (Non-member) per course (each topic is a different course, thus registering as a member for both courses in San Diego would cost $290).

This year they offer a discounted rate of $45 per course for restoration volunteers, thanks to special grant funding. You qualify as a "restoration volunteer" if weed management is not part of your professional work and you volunteer for an organized restoration effort.

All courses include lunch, snacks and reference material. There are DPR continuing education credits for most courses. Registration is taken on a space-available basis. Pre-registration is required, as Cal-IPC is not able to handle any payments on the day of the course.
