COLLEGE STATION – Invasive grasses will be the subject of an Oct. 3 webinar conducted by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

The webinar, Invasive Grasses: Ecology, Effects on Wildlife, and Management, will be conducted by Dr. Tim Fulbright, a Meadow’s Professor in semiarid land ecology at the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute, Texas A&M University-Kingsville.

“More and more of our native rangelands are experiencing invasive grass species encroachment,” Fulbright said. “This webinar will focus on invasive grasses and the impact they have on wildlife habitat. In addition, grass ecology and potential management practices to increase plant diversity will be addressed.”

This webinar is part of the Texas Range Webinar Series conducted monthly by AgriLife Extension’s ecosystem science and management unit. Each webinar is scheduled from noon to 1 p.m., according to Pete Flores, webinar coordinator in College Station.

Participants seeking Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units must pay a $10 fee on the website. For all others, there is no fee, Flores said. Licensed agricultural private pesticide applicators participating in this webinar can earn one integrated pest management continuing education unit.

This webinar and others in the series can be accessed at http://naturalresourcewebinars.tamu.edu.

Continuing education units for archived webinars will only be available for one month following the live version of the webinar. After the month has passed, the webinar will still be available to watch, but participants will not be able to register for or receive credits.
