The workshop is open to any member of the public including land managers, natural resource professionals, restoration specialists, landowners, and homeowners. Local area conservation groups will be present to provide resources and share opportunities on how to get involved in the community. Workshop fee includes a hot lunch (baked potato bar) and the chance to win door prizes. Raffle tickets for chainsaw/ chaps/ and helmet combo, as well as other tools of the trade to combat invasive species, will be sold at the workshop for $5 each, or 3 for $10.
