Illinois First Detector

Early detection and response is key to managing invasive pests. The Illinois First Detector Workshops are aimed at improving first detector training and invasive species awareness. Topics will take a closer look at oak diseases such as bur oak blight, oak wilt, and sudden oak death as well as insect invaders of Illinois trees. Learn more about invasive plants and how they may affect human health. Back by popular demand is the Q & A lunch session where speakers update participants on previous topics and open the floor to your questions. These in-depth training sessions also give participants the opportunity to take part in hands-on activities to learn about the topics in more detail.

The next workshop is at Touch of Nature January 26, 2017 (9:00 AM )
