MidSouth APMS Applicator Workshop (Sep 13, 2016)

On Tuesday September 13, 2016, the MidSouth Aquatic Plant Management Society will hold an aquatic applicator workshop during the 35th annual conference in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  This event will provide a recertification opportunity for individuals certified as aquatic pesticide applicators in the MidSouth and surrounding regions.  The morning session will include a 90 minute boat tour of Henderson Lake, which is located in the western portion of the Atchafalaya Basin.  Participants will experience first-hand invasive species, beautiful landscapes, and learn about current management efforts to control giant salvinia, hydrilla, water hyacinth, and other problematic aquatic species.  During the afternoon session, a classroom setting will utilized for several presentations focusing on plant identification, chemical control, biological control, and pesticide safety.  For more information on the workshop, please visit http://www.msapms.org/ or contact Christopher Mudge (Christopher.R.Mudge@usace.army.mil).
