St. Lucie Extension Offers Natural Areas Weed Management Pesticide Licensing Exam, Prep April 26
Management of Brazilian Pepper-tree, Melaleuca and other invasive plants is often necessary in South Florida’s natural areas. This vegetation, if not properly maintained, can lead to increased fire hazards, loss of native biodiversity and changes in hydrology. Improper management may also result in environmental damages and decreased aesthetic and property values.
On Friday, April 26, Ken Gioeli, natural resources extension agent with the University of Florida / St. Lucie County Extension, will be teaching a course designed to prepare students to successfully complete the Natural Areas Weed Control Pesticide Licensing Exam.
