Flywheel Spoke 1- Investigation, Planning & Prevention

Investigation, planning and prevention provides the foundation for the flywheel approach and other IPM strategies. These practices catch weed and pest problems before they occur, aide with prioritizing areas and provide critical information for evaluating and improving land management plans.  The Lawn & Land Forum working group has invited a couple of presenters to discuss their approach to natural area management investigation, planning and prevention and featured those presenters below. In the future, the Forum will organize these speakers and case studies into a list of best practices for investigation, planning and prevention. This work is funded by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources Coastal Management Program.
