A two day Invasive Species workshop on Beaver Island. The workshop is being held by the CAKE CISMA in partnership with The Nature Conservancy. It will be June 28th and June 29th. The intent of the workshop is to increase the capacity of Beaver Island residents to carry out invasive species ID and management along with educating other stake holders in preventing the spread of invasives to the archipelago. We will have presenters from MNFI, DNR, MDARD, CAKE, TNC, Little Traverse Conservancy and others
