Co-Sponsorship for the 2012 "Weeds Across Borders" Conference

The Weeds Across Borders (WAB) is a biennial trilateral conference covering the interests of professionals and organizations involved in North American weed management and regulation. The purpose with a common interest in sharing information and promoting weed management throughout North America. Composed of an affiliation of organizations from Canada, Mexico, and the United States, the WAB Conference is unique in that it connects scientists, practitioners, and policy-makers with their counterparts in Canada, Mexico and the United States. The fact that all three countries are connected by land and roads requires that all three must work together to stop the spread of invasive plants across the continent to mutual benefit. This interdisciplinary approach leads attendees to share information that can ward off the invasive threat with research, best practices, and policy support.
