There is continued concern from the public about the use of glyphosate on the land, to the point that some folks stop listening when one even mentions the “G” word. We don’t know of another control method that is as effective as glyphosate, but one day, glyphosate may very well no longer be an option as a management technique. As ecological stewards, it’s imperative that we keep looking for alternatives and talking about what we are finding. To set the framework for this discussion, we will dive into the meaning of Integrated Pest Management and look at a case study of how the City of Ann Arbor Natural Preservation and the Washtenaw Stiltgrass Working Group are using IPM to control a new invader, stiltgrass, in the greater Ann Arbor area. Please bring your expertise, anecdotes, and questions to the conversation.
