Bugs and Brews: Biocontrol of Invasive Weeds

May 31, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This month’s speaker is Melissa Maggio-Kassner, a project coordinator for the Montana Biocontrol Coordination Project. MTBCP is a grassroots effort that providies the leadership, coordination, and education necessary to enable land managers across Montana to successfully incorporate biocontrol into their noxious weed management programs.

Using species specific insect pests to help manage our plant pests in Montana is a great addition to the more commonly utilized weed management methods when used properly and with realistic expectations. Our speaker will address some of the more common misconceptions associated with weed biocontrol and discuss how to properly use biocontrol in combination with other weed management tools. She will even bring a few species of these helpful weed fighting insects to see in person.

Tickets: $5 at the door, not available in advance. Admission to the talks comes with two drink tickets. Must be 21 or older to have alcoholic drinks.
