Course Description

Learn to assess the invasive species issues at a site, and set priorities for efficiently and effectively managing invasive species in this engaging online class.

Through interactive online learning modules, you will explore how to prioritize management activities, learn the importance of seasonal timing of invasive species control, and discuss how to develop a plan of action for stewardship at an example site.

The self-guided material can be completed wherever you have access to a computer, at your own pace. This program is part of Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month, a statewide effort held each May to educate and inform citizens of Illinois about the threat of invasive species.
