Field Trips

The 2019 MISAC invasives field tour began at the beautiful Itasca State Park. Participants toured a number of sites in the area to learn about Eurasian watermilfoil biocontrol, Siberian pea shrub, Faucet snails, Larch casebearer, Brown Knapweed, Asian bush honeysuckle, use of Buckthorn baggies, Spotted knapweed biocontrol, and Purple loosestrife biocontrol.

The 2017 MISAC field trip took place in September. Attendees toured Duluth, learning how to stop the spread of invasive species while visiting a CD3 Cleaning Station and the Duluth Aquarium.
