Save the Date for 2016 Illinois First Detector Workshops

We are pleased to announce the dates for the First Detector Workshops. Topics in 2016 will cover insect invaders of forests, boxwood blight, and jumping worms. Learn more about your role as a first detector, what's new with the Illinois Exotic Weed Act. Back by popular demand is the Q & A lunch session where speakers update participants on previous topics and open the floor to your questions. Plan on joining us in one of these locations--more information on how to register will be available in the coming months.
