AOWCP works with partners to hold workshop for right-of-way managers

On Tuesday, 3/26/2013 an invasive plant workshop was held at the Logan, OH Hocking County Soil and Water Conservation District building. The workshop was an collaborative effort among the Hocking, Vinton, and Fairfield SWCDs; OSU-Extension; and the AOWCP. Discussions included invasive plant ecology and identification, early detection and rapid response, and preventative measures and best management practices. A total of 12 right-of-way managers attended. A special thank you to the presenters: Cody Hacker – Vinton SWCD, Eric Boyda- AOWCP, and Jonathan Ferbrache – Fairfield SWCD. The AOWCP will work with partners to continue holding similar workshops in additional counties.
