A Municipal/Business Invasive Species Prevention Workshop will be held on Monday, April 8th from 5:15-7:30 pm at the Delta Township District Library in Lansing, MI. This workshop focused on oak wilt, an invasive disease, is geared for municipal/governmental and commercial business staff- city planners, parks and recreation, public works, forestry departments, commercial landscapers, arborists, foresters, interested individuals, and more!
