As part of the Green Industry Continuing Education Series, University of Nevada, Reno Extension is offering “Noxious Weed ID,” noon – 1 p.m., July 14. The class will be held at the Extension office at 4955 Energy Way in Reno, as well as via Zoom.

“The Green Industry Continuing Education Series is a great way to maintain professional certifications conveniently during your lunch hour,” Chad Morris, Commercial Horticulture Program coordinator, said.

 

The class, taught by Sean Gephart, pacific southwest account manager at Alligare, will outline how to effectively identify and control problematic noxious weeds in Nevada landscapes. The class offers International Society of Arboriculture Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and one general Pesticide Applicator Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
