Presentation Title

Get connected: Lessons shared from the PNW-Garlic Mustard Working Group

Abstract

Garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) is an ODA-listed class B noxious weed and threatens many types of ecosystems west of the Cascade Range, as well as riparian corridors east of the Cascades. Starting in 2014, a self-organized collaboration called the Pacific Northwest Garlic Mustard Working Group has brought together invasive plant managers from across Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia to share observations, best management practices, prevention techniques, survey methodologies and outreach strategies across the region. This has resulted in developing shared outreach and prevention products, a cross-jurisdictional Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategy, regional maps, and a collaborative understanding of management practices and survey gaps. The presentation will address landscape-level management principles, convey the latest integrated pest management solutions for garlic mustard, and highlight methods for starting a working group to tackle natural resource goals across broad geographies.
