Gorse in Threatened Coastal Habitats Applied Research Workshop

The Pacific Northwest Invasive Plant Council and the Oregon State Parks are hosting a free workshop February 8th at Bullard Beach State Park in Bandon, Oregon.

Gorse in Threatened Coastal Habitats Applied Research Workshop
Bullard’s Beach State Park, Bandon, Oregon
Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Since its introduction into the Western U.S. coast, gorse, Ulex europaeus, continues to expand its range of growth despite control attempts. Natural coastal systems, such as dunal and headland habitats, are particularly vulnerable to gorse invasion.

You are invited to participate in an applied research workshop that will share current knowledge and methodologies of gorse control and restoring vulnerable coastal habitats threatened by gorse. Researchers and practitioners will collaborate on current knowledge of gorse control, identify lessons learned and information gaps, identify strategies to increase research and field testing, identify achievable future desired conditions, and generate workshop summary and next steps.
