Manzanita, Oregon – On February 14th, the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council is excited to host Troy Abercrombie for his talk “A Marginally Comprehensive Overview of Invasive Weeds Management”. Troy is the Invasive Weeds Program Coordinator at the Tillamook Soil and Water Conservation District. Drawing on a decade of work in weed management in both the public and private sector, he will introduce us to the major species of concern for Tillamook County. He will also talk about IPM (Integrated Pest Management) as a framework for weed control and a bit of discussion about herbicides in IPM.
Before Troy’s talk, the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council will hold its February Board Meeting. This is an opportunity for the public to see how the watershed council operates. Following the board meeting, there will be a short summary of council activities before Troy Abercrombie’s talk begins.
This event will be held at the Pine Grove Community House, 225 Laneda Ave, in Manzanita. The Board Meeting begins at 6 pm. The presentation will start at 7:10 pm following a brief update from the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council at 7:00 pm.
