Abstract:
Education and technology transfer are central to implementing successful ecologically based invasive plant management (EBIPM) programs on western rangelands, particularly those infested by exotic annual grasses. Outreach education events (field schools, workshops, field tours, and symposia) and products (manager guidelines, fact sheets, videos, and curricula) were developed for public/private land managers, policy makers and the general public. A website provides a clearinghouse for viewing and downloading products and event presentations/materials. Attendance at outreach events, requests for products, website visitation, and adoption of EBIPM concepts/practices in invasive plant management plans on public/private lands demonstrate the value of this comprehensive technology transfer effort.
