Herbicide Workshop

Herbicide Workshop

February 2 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

Casino Hall, 254 North Jefferson, La Grange, TX.

$35/person, lunch included. Buy tickets here.

This workshop is intended for two audiences: (1) those already using herbicides in prairie/savanna restoration/maintenance and wishing to learn more about their effective and safe use, and (2) those not doing prairie/savanna restoration because herbicides are involved, but who are open to learning more about herbicides. A wealth of expertise has been assembled to address the educational needs of both groups. Lunch will be provided. There will be time following the presentations for questions, with a designated discussion period following the presentations. Participants will also be able to interact with speakers during the workshop and over lunch. See agenda below or download here.
