We have two of these events left, with Tom Alwin from EGLE doing an invasive species update Monday, February 15th and Eric Bacon from ANC talking about permitting on the 22nd. Recordings of the sessions are also available on The Stewardship Network's YouTube. Please feel free to share with your networks, riparians, or lake associations!
  11. Hello, I have put together the following management practices for a RFP we will be bidding out in 2021. If possible, I would greatly appreciate any feedback on the following suggested techniques. Poison Hemlock For Poison hemlock, Contractor must perform foliar applications during the rosette stage of the plant in early spring, typically during the month of May. Chemical suggested for use may include an aquatic approved glyphosate at 2% or triclopyr at 1.5% depending on proximity to the water body. Anticipated active ingredients, percent solution, and timing of applica

  17. Unfortunately, I can't; it wasn't official, so I don't have records (plus it was like 7 years ago). However, it was probably equivalent to the standard concentration we use for broadleaf weeds--1.5% Garlon 3A.

  19. Thank you, Katie! Another suggestion was to use 2% glyphosate. However, I like the idea of using triclopyr for the sake of grasses on site, especially since this is covering roughly 10 acres of land. Can you provide more information about the % of triclopyr used?
  20. Looks about right; I've only treated it privately, and I used triclopyr so it wouldn't kill grasses. Clipped seedheads, sprayed non-bolted rosettes, left follow-up to the friend whose land it was. Seemed to work pretty well.
  21. ISN is hiring two seasonal crew members for this summer's field season! A complete job description and guidelines for applying can be found on our website. Share if applicable!
