As the culminating event of 2015 Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month, the Illinois Invasive Species Symposium promises to be a great opportunity to learn more about what is happening on the invasive species front throughout Illinois. The Illinois Invasive Species Symposium is a one-day, all-taxa symposium that features talks on current and emerging issues surrounding invasive plants, diseases, insects, and animals in Illinois. Also including in the symposium is a ceremony for this year's Invasive Species Awareness Month Award winners.
This year's symposium will be held on May 28th from 9:30am - 4pm at the University of Illinois Extension Office in Champaign. The symposium is free and open to the public. We are planning on a live webcast of all presentations again this year, so check back for details on this as we get closer to the date.
*UPDATE - Onsite registration for the symposium is now full. You can view a live webcast of the symposium at https://mediaspace.illinois.edu/media/University+of+Illinois+Live/1_co83enap
