On Tuesday, August 9th, the Missouri Department of Conservation will hold an Invasive Species Workshop from 9:30 am – 3:00 pm at the First Baptist Church at 500 S Main Street, El Dorado Springs, MO. The Invasive Species Workshop will include presentations by MFA, Professional Weed Management Services, Mid-West Fertilizer, MU Extension, Corteva Agriscience, and the MO Dept. of Conservation. The workshop is free, and lunch will be provided but please register by August 5th by registering online or by contacting the MO Dept. of Conservation Office in Clinton at 660-885-6981. Invasive Species are prolific seed producers, have a highly successful dispersal rate, colonize quickly, rapidly grow to maturity, the ability to out-compete native species, and are aggressive, competitive, and adaptable. Because of those features, invasive species typically cause problems on or around a person’s property. Therefore, they prevent landowners from achieving certain goals on their property. Landowners that are interested in the following activities should consider attending this meeting: • Remove and control red cedars • Control invasive species • Increase available forage for livestock • Maintaining resiliency on the farm • Staying away from monocultures • Maintain quality wildlife habitat We have been battling invasives and must continue the battle to stop these pests! There are ways to suppress the vigor of invasives through the use of fire, grazing, mowing, or other targeted strategies that allows the remaining community to better compete with the invasive species. To learn more about controlling invasive species, please plan to attend this workshop. For more information, please contact MDC Private Land Conservationist Aimee Coy at 660-885-6981. Aimee Coy
