Sublette County D.A.R.T. Detect-Assess-Respond-Training Tuesday, July 27th 2010 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Pinedale/Big Piney, WY The objective for these workshops is to identify current exotic/noxious weed and insect pests new to the United States or Wyoming, and those with relatively limited distribution within Wyoming. Additional goals will be to explore introduction pathways, early detection and rapid response efforts, discuss communication networking and report-a-pest options, and pest risk analysis as well as a brief update on current Wyoming pests of concern. Ideally one will take away tools that will help land-stewards identify weed and insect pests of concern, followed by how to collect samples and where to report observations. The success and productivity of Wyoming’s vast and bountiful landscapes relies heavily on your effort to keep these pests out.
