  1. The Northwest Michigan Invasive Species Network (and fiduciary, the Grand Traverse Conservation District) are currently hiring a new Coordinator and Outreach Specialist. More information can be found online here --> https://natureiscalling.org/employment
  2. There was interest in a recent CISMA meeting to see some materials ISN created for local seed swaps. The flyer and a social media post (sized for Facebook) are attached. I am happy to provide these files with folks to share in your region...if you want space for your own logo, let me know and I can make those adjustments - ecook@gtcd.org
  3. 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!
  4. Hi Megan, ISN has assembled some of our favorites on our website - feel free to check it out! There are a lot of online resources but the bottom has a list of the books we seem to refer to the most. I hope that helps! Emily

Go Beyond Beauty Specialist - Full time, salaried position The Go Beyond Beauty Specialist works with the ISN team and project partners to implement the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program grant, which funds the position.

  6. I have been developing a simple invasive species curriculum and would like to make it available to all. It is a nice tool to have when going into schools or teaching stand-alone lessons to children. I have also found it to be easy to change depending on the age group you are presenting to! Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have - ecook@gtcd.org or (231)941-0960 x20. *Please note that some of the activities the curriculum refers to can be found on our website: https://www.habitatmatters.org/education.html Invasive Species Curriculum.pdf Invasive Species Curriculum PowerPoint.pptx
  7. ISN is seeking applicants for our Hemlock Woolly Adelgid Survey Team! Please spread the word - more information can be found on our website: https://www.habitatmatters.org/uploads/9/5/0/6/95066352/isn_hwa_survey_tech_2018_post.pdf
  8. Thanks for sharing, Shelby! I have posted it on our website too. Good luck!
  9. Hi Vicki, I already sent you what ISN has available but for others, I created an invasive species curriculum that can be found on ISN's website. It includes a general lesson plan that can be adapted for both indoor/outdoor use and various age levels. I will try and upload the actual files to the forum as well. This is a great topic to discuss as I'm always looking for new ideas as well! I'll be looking forward to seeing what others have done.
  10. Oops, spoke too soon and found it myself. For anyone else curious... Reg. 637, Rule 4 [R285.637.4(l)] requires the name of the licensed application firm and either the address or telephone number or USDOT census number, printed or affixed to the exterior of the vehicle used to transport a pesticide, and legible, visible, and in typeface 3 inches or higher.
  11. Thanks, Drew! Katie also mentioned some rules from MDARD regarding appropriate "signage" when treating - especially when it comes to how vehicles should be identified. I'm looking for more info/parameters on this to ensure ISN is up to snuff. Can you or anyone point me in the right direction?
