Our mission is to lessen the negative impact of invasive species on both private and public land within 10 counties located in Virginia’s northern Blue Ridge region. Blue Ridge Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management or PRISM is Virginia’s first Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) and a registered 501(c)(3) public charity.
Blue Ridge PRISM’s upcoming Summer Quarterly Meeting will focus on the identification, control, and long-term management of common invasive grasses in Virginia. A brief presentation offering an overview of common invasive grasses will be followed by a facilitated discussion and public question/answer session with an expert panel. The panelists have extensive experience in controlling and managing invasive grasses in forests, natural areas, upland pastures and agricultural lands, riparian buffers, restoration areas, and suburban areas. Join us on July 21 at 1:00pm ready with your invasive grass management questions for the panelists.
Blue Ridge PRISM is pleased to have the following invasive management professionals participate on the panel:
Celia Vuocolo – Private Lands Biologist, Quail Forever
Brian Morse – Wildlife Biologist, Virginia Forestry and Wildlife Group
