Event description

Description

In partnership with United States Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, the Columbia Gorge Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA), the Washington Invasive Species Council, and Washington State University Extension will be co-hosting the 8th Annual Columbia Gorge Invasive Species and Exotic Pest Workshop! This excellent opportunity is designed to provide information on invasive species management to land managers and the interested public. We will focus on identification and control methods for the Spotted Lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula) and Flowering Rush (Butomus umbellatus) in the morning. After lunch, we will put your weed identification skills to the test with a fun, interactive weed quiz through the game-based platform, Kahoot!. Later in the day, we will hear the latest news on regional pesticide research updates and the Eagle Creek Fire containment zone. We are excited to be hosting at Skamania County's Hegewald Center once again! The draft agenda is posted below.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

  • Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) - 7 CEUs

  • International Society of Aboriculture (ISA) - 4.25 Certified Arborist CEUs

*Information on WSDA recertification credits will be determined soon.

  • On the day of the event, please park behind the Hegewald Center near the Skamania County Fairgrounds; parking is not allowed in the front of the building.

About the Hegewald Center:

July 8, 2010 the Skamania County Board of Commissioners dedicated what was formerly the Rock Creek Center to the Rudy & Helen Hegewald family. The dedication came at the conclusion of an addition and remodel to the existing structure which was built on land donated by the Hegewald family for park and fairgrounds use. The building, which used to house the Parks & Recreation Department is now home to a beautiful Community Services center which includes Skamania County Facilities & Recreation, Community Health and Senior Services. Hegewald Center is situated directly adjacent to the Rock Creek Park and Skamania County Fairgrounds. Skamania County is also home to a variety of recreational opportunities for those guests who have the time to explore.
