Noxious Weeds That Impact Riparian Habitat: Integrated Pest Management and Best Practices
February 28, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:45 pmFree
2:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. Pacific Standard Time
Riparian areas represent a transition between aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. The interactions between water and land create habitat that is critical to the existence of species found both on land and in water. Known for their moist and mild microclimates, riparian areas have fertile soils that support plant growth and complex food webs. Riparian areas, like other ecosystems, are vulnerable to impacts from noxious weeds. Stewardship of riparian areas helps support numerous wildlife species, including many that we highly value such as salmon and steelhead.
Join us for a webinar exploring noxious weeds that impact riparian habitat both in Eastern and Western Washington. Speakers will introduce concepts of riparian health and stewardship, discuss identification and impacts of common and uncommon riparian noxious weeds, and share best practices and approaches for managing riparian health and the noxious weeds that threaten these valuable ecosystems.
