The training is lead by Jo Latimore and Erick Elgin, the EAPW program administrators at MSU. All you have to do is click the link below on Friday the 27th at 1pm to participate in the training. If you are unable to join, they will also have a video of the training available to you when you sign up to participate in the Exotic Aquatic Plant Watch program this year.

You must also contact Jo Latimore (firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-432-1491) by May 1 to confirm that you will be conducting the Exotic Aquatic Plant Watch. Michigan State University and Extension have a separate contract with the state to offer the Exotic Aquatic Plant Watch, so this parameter will continue as usual, but with no enrollment fees. Alternative training arrangements can be made with MSU if they are available this year. Field visits to selected lakes in support of your invasive plant monitoring efforts will also be subject to availability.
