Cal-IPC 2014 Symposium

October 8-11, Chico State University


Sutter Buttes
Field trip to the Sutter Buttes, 2008.

Thanks to all who attended the 2013 Symposium at Lake Arrowhead! Presentations are available in our Symposium Archive.

Join fellow land managers, researchers, and conservationists for our 23rd Cal-IPC Symposium in the college town of Chico at the north end of the Central Valley! The Symposium will feature presentations and discussion groups covering the latest information in land management. Field course Wednesday, Laws and Regulations session Wednesday evening, conference sessions Thursday-Friday, field trips Saturday. We will apply for continuing education credits from the Department of Pesticide Regulation, including 2 hours of Laws credits.

With the drought affecting many land management decisions, we thought this would be a good year to focus on the interactions between Weeds and Water (and weeds and drought). This year's Symposium will feature plenary sessions on Riparian Restoration, Weeds as Water Wasters, and Creative Solutions. A preliminary program will be posted in June. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Tom Griggs of River Partners in Chico as our keynote speaker.
