Annual Winter Weed Conference

Dedicated to preventing the introduction and spread of invasive weeds in the state of Nevada, ENLC has hosted the Winter Weed Conference annually since 2005 as a platform to distribute information about battling weeds in an arid environment with limited resources. During the event, attendees are able to hear the latest information about noxious and invasive vegetation from a panel of experts. The conference additionally provides interested individuals with the opportunity to take the pesticide applicator’s test and allows previously licensed applicators to gain recertification continuing education units (CEUs).
