  1. Hello, Here is a link to the food inspection agency in Canada. They have some nice ID cards you can print out or use for examples in presentations. https://www.inspection.gc.ca/plants/plant-pests-invasive-species/insects/plant-pest-cards/eng/1548085757491/1548085933224 s2
  2. Hello folks, I was on the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) Data Portal and found a document entitled: Inspection and Cleaning Manual for Equipment and Vehicles to Prevent the Spread of Invasive Species (Technical Memorandum No. 86-68220-07-05), but it is created by U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation. Some good information on things like: sources of contamination at sites, how decontaminate etc.... It will come up as a download when you click the link. I attached the pdf itself for your ease as well. Some nice pictures and tips. https://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx?DocumentID=48043 Sincerely, Shikha JLW CISMA USBREquipmentInspectionandCleaningManual2012.pdf
  3. Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well. I just wanted to pass on a relevant link that I found entitled "What Happens When Humans Fall In Love With An Invasive Species". Be it mute swans, japanese knotweed or something else, the human dimensions of this issue is really interesting. There are some interesting nuggets of information that may apply directly or indirectly to some of the issues various CISMA's are dealing with. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/what-happens-when-humans-fall-in-love-with-an-invasive-species/?ex_cid=story-facebook&fbclid=IwAR1NqAv4kdIu-ka5JEUUFLWYKtYB8yZwLEb9J3bwx3dkihBOoba8VWuJHFk Please let me know if this is an appropriate venue for sharing these articles. If not, I can just email interested parties. Sincerely, Shikha
