Best Management Practices Training Webinars

It’s important to us that we grow our reach to all of Ontario and beyond, and that includes hosting training sessions in an easy-to-access, online format. Therefore, we have hosted a number of training webinars for many of our Best Management Practices documents and recorded them, so they can be viewed at a later date. Find the webinars from 2016 below and stay tuned for upcoming webinars.

Creating an Invasive Plant Management Strategy: A Framework for Ontario Municipalities

In 2015, with funding from the Invasive Species Centre, we developed a framework for Ontario municipalities to follow to develop their own invasive plant management strategy. In 2015 and 2016, we then hosted four workshops throughout the province to engage municipalities and community groups in the fight against invasive plants, by providing information on how to develop an invasive plant management strategy. We hope to continue these in our 2016-2017 fiscal year.


Depending on funding, we host a number of other training workshops related to the Clean Equipment Protocol, invasive Phragmites, invasive plant identification and landowner’s management training workshops. Stay tuned to our calendar of events for a workshop near you or sign up for our e-blast.
