Invasive Plant Training Webinars

Sharing the most accurate and current information on invasive plant control is vitally important. We use our annual OIPC Winter Webinar Series to help make the most important developments in invasive plant control available to stakeholders across Ontario. Join us through these webinars to stay up to date on latest developments regarding invasive plant control, prevention and other important topics. Webinar recordings and presentations are also archived below for our network to use.

Creating an Invasive Plant Management Strategy: A Framework for Ontario Municipalities

In 2015, with funding from the Invasive Species Centre, we developed a framework for Ontario municipalities to follow to develop their own invasive plant management strategy. In 2015 and 2016, we hosted four workshops throughout the province to engage municipalities and community groups in the fight against invasive plants, by providing information on how to develop an invasive plant management strategy. In 2016-2017, we hosted six more. Below are some of the presentations from these workshops. If you are interested in us hosting a workshop for your community email Kellie.

Early Detection and Rapid Response Network Ontario

The Ontario Invasive Plant Council and the Invasive Species Centre partner together through our EDRR Network Ontario program which delivers training on invasive species identification, reporting and control techniques to a range of audiences in communities across the province. Click here for more information from the EDRR website.

Other Training Opportunities

Depending on funding, we host a number of other training workshops related to the Clean Equipment Protocol, invasive Phragmites, invasive plant identification and landowner’s management training workshops. Stay tuned to our calendar of events for a workshop near you or sign up for our e-blast.

You can also contact us if you would like to hire us to organize a workshop for you.
