THE STATUS OF INVASIVE SPECIES is a series of Nature Change mini-documentaries highlighting Manistee County.

Following the films, enjoy a Q&A with a panel of experts who are featured and/or play an important role in regional conservation efforts. Panelists include Jane Perrino, Coordinator of the Aquatic Invasive Species Pathways Project; Josh Shields, Outreach Forester with the Forestry Assistance Program (Manistee and Mason Lakes Conservation Districts); Carolyn Henne, a Botanist with the Huron-Manistee National Forests; and Katie Grzesiak, Coordinator of Invasive Species Network.

An Evening of Conservation will be a wonderful opportunity to meet local invasive species professionals and learn about current issues at a local level. Joe VanderMeulen from Nature Change will be moderating the panel with some prepared topics but audience members will be invited to ask their own questions as well!

Each attendee will receive an invasive species field guide and be entered in a drawing at the end of the night. Prizes include native plants, tee shirts, hats, gift certificates and more!
