Information about the target invasive plant species is communicated to the public, tree care professionals, County Agricultural Inspectors, Cooperative Weed Management Areas, and land managers via the web at Noxious and Invasive Weed Program website and My Minnesota Woods. The public also receives communications about target species via workshops, news media (print, television, and radio) and social media.
Master volunteers are trained to recognize common invasive plants and strategies to coordinate volunteer work days to effectively remove target species. These master volunteers also host local invasive species removal events in the spring and/or fall across the state.
Invasive Blitz training materials are available online. Materials include tools for planning projects, prioritizing invasive plant control, and a tree selection guide.
