WORKSHOP 3) “INVADERS IN OUR BACKYARD—A Case for Ongoing Stewardship”

TUESDAY, MAY 22, 2012; 6:00pm–8:00pm

Greenough Park Pavilion, 1629 Monroe St, Missoula

Overview:

Participants will be able to go from “station” to “station” in and around the Greenough Park Pavilion and interact with local experts as they discuss stewardship issues in the Rattlesnake watershed. Fun, interesting, enlightening–and games for kids!

Participants will consider people’s role in the watershed; non-native trout populations and competition for resources; invasive aquatic and terrestrial plants; wildlife (especially bear) habitats; riparian restoration, and more. We will learn the threats posed by invasives and the things we can do to protect our wonderful watershed.
