Terrestrial Invasive Plant Training Sessions

Paul Rischmiller, Crew Leader for Invasive Plant Control (APIPP’s Rapid Response Team), and APIPP’s Terrestrial Invasive Species Project Coordinator, Brendan Quirion, describe and demonstrate how to treat and manage Japanese knotweed infestations at a site behind the Bolton Landing Town Hall on Thursday, July 25th.

APIPP has been conducting a series of Terrestrial Invasive Plant Training sessions geared toward landowners in the Adirondacks. These invasive plant management sessions are free to the public and have been a huge success this year with 27 people in attendance for our training session at the SUNY ESF Ranger School in Wanakena and 30 people in attendance at our training session in Bolton Landing.
