Annual Invasive Species Workshop

About the Workshop

The Alaska Committee for Noxious and Invasive Plant Management and the Alaska Invasive Species Working Group organize an invasive species workshop held annually in the late fall.  The workshop rotates between locations in Anchorage, Fairbanks and various rural communities. 

The workshop is a forum for discussing invasive species management activities within the state and offers expert presentations about emerging invasive species science and management issues.  The workshop typically draws 100 to 150 participants.

The Anchorage Borough has an active invasive species management group which, in conjuction with various other partners, works through CANWIN (Citizens Against Noxious Weeds Invading the North). Anchorage offers a unique perspective on invasive species management considering it is the largest urban area in the state and has a variety of invasive species management issues ranging from aquatic species such as Northern Pike and Elodea to upland species such as European bird cherry and thistles.
