The Cook County Invasives Team (CCIT) has received a grant through the Minnesota DNR’s Lake Superior Coastal Program to complete an invasive species outreach and education campaign in 2015. The grant will fund six free workshops featuring expert guest speakers. Six radio interviews will be aired on WTIP with an accompanying discussion forum on Boreal Access (boreal.org). Each group of events will focus on a topic relating to a different aspect of invasive species prevention and control. In addition, four newspaper inserts will appear in the Cook County News Herald throughout the summer with details about events and topics.
Links to the radio interviews and information regarding events will be posted on this page and in the events calendar.
