The Upper Midwest Invasive Species Conference (UMISC) is a biennial conference. The Conference host organizations and organizing committees are pleased to join with the North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAISMA) to organize the largest invasive species conference in North America at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, MN - October 15-18, 2018.
The goal of UMISC is to strengthen management of invasive species, especially prevention, control, and containment. Invasive species research, prevention, and management has seen great strides but much work still must be done.
The most recent UMISC was held October 16-19 at the La Crosse Center in La Crosse, WI with 651 attendees from across the region bringing an unparalleled breadth of knowledge. The conference provides numerous opportunities to network with professionals, land managers, researchers, nonprofits, and others. We hope you will join us in 2018 for the next UMISC. Location TBA.
Conference Hosts are the Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin, Midwest Invasive Plant Network, Minnesota Invasive Species Advisory Council, and the North American Invasive Species Management Association.
UMISC is open to any member of the general public. Attendees typically include:
