Clarion Conservation District Holds Workshop Series

Sara Stahlman, Extension Leader for PA Sea Grant, gave a talk at Clarion Conservation District’s aquatic invasive species workshop on November 23, 2019. The topic was Pennsylvania’s rapid response plan for aquatic invasive species. Photo provided by Clarion Conservation District.

As part of their 2019-20 Nonpoint Source Pollution Prevention Mini-grant Project, the Clarion Conservation District held two workshops. The first workshop was focused on invasive plant species in riparian areas. The second workshop addressed aquatic invasive species. A third workshop, which would have focused on invasive arthropods, had to be canceled due to the coronavirus crisis.

The purpose of this project was to educate the local community on how to identify aquatic and terrestrial invasive species, their impacts, and how to control or treat them.

Financial and other support for this project is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection under Section 319 of the Clean Water Act, administered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
