The Upper Midwest Invasive Species Conference (UMISC) is a biennial conference celebrating 10 years of connecting the invasive species management, research, and policy community. The Conference host organizations and organizing committees are pleased to join with the North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAISMA), celebrating its 25th year, to co-host the largest invasive species conference in North America.
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.
