Jane Presentation

Our lab works with researchers, Extension agents, public land managers, and land owners to develop, gather, and share information on invasive plant management that is based on our best understanding of ecology.  Information is available through Extension publications, presentations, workshops, and other outreach activities.

The Mangold lab holds "Noxious Weed Management Certification Workshops", which are typically 3-day studies of weed biology, ecology, and management. It is designed to benefit those new to weed management and experienced professionals. This series of workshops (Level 1 through Level 3) provides training opportunities for local, state, federal government, and other land managers in Montana interested in current advances in noxious weed management. Course complexity increases with subsequent levels. Pesticide applicator recertification credits are available for each workshop.

Check back for announcements regarding Noxious Weed Management Certification Workshops (Level 2 scheduled for fall 2016).
