Keep your calendars open on Saturday November 20, 2004 from 9:00a.m. to
2:30p.m. for the upcoming Invading Species Workshop for Landowners.

 

Asian Long-Horned Beetle, Round Goby, and Purple Loosestrife are examples of
just a few invading species, which threaten the health of Ontario's forests,
lakes and wetlands. Introduced from other regions of the world these
invasive insects, plants and fish can have devastating environmental
impacts.  This workshop will provide you with the most current information
on these invaders and actions to date to prevent their spread.

partnership with the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, Toronto and
Region and Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authorities, Halton Peel
Woodlands and Wildlife Stewardship, Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources,
York Region, Oak Ridges Moraine Land Trust (ORMLT), and Seneca College.
