How You Can Stop the Spread of Invasive Species

May 10 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join us as we discover the impact of invasive species on our local communities, and ways we can minimize their impact! Hosted by Ashley Morgan-Olvera, M.S., the Research and Education Director for Ms. Morgan-Olivera has worked extensively with federal, state, and local groups setting up invasive insect, mollusk, and plant pathogen field surveys. She has participated in Clean Rivers surveys in the Huntsville and Houston areas, set up outreach initiatives on Citrus Diseases in Texas, and developed an Invasive Species Curriculum for Texas High School students. She understands public education is vital to stop the spread of invasive species and to keep Texas beautiful, so she provides training and workshops to motivate others to action against invasive plants and pests.
