Landscape certificate class offered at URI

All landscape professionals who work within coastal buffer zones are invited to enroll in the Invasive Plant Management Certification Program at the University of Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay Campus on July 15 and 16.

Coastal Resources Management Council permits for invasive plant management in coastal buffer zones will only be granted to professionals who hold the Invasive Manager certification from the program.

Sponsored by the URI College of the Environment and Life Sciences Outreach Center and the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council, the workshop will include discussion of coastal plant communities, site assessment and inventory, invasive plant control measures, disposal and revegetation techniques, and CRMC buffer zone regulations.

Program leaders represent the URI Outreach Center, CRMC, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and the Rhode Island Natural History Survey.

The workshop fee is $150 for both days, which includes breakfast, lunch and training materials.

For more information or to register, contact Kate Venturini, coordinator of URI's Coastal Landscapes Program, at 874-4096 or kate@uri.edu.
