Women in Weed Science Summer Event

For the past 8 years the ‘Women in Weed Science Networking Breakfast’ has been held at the annual NCWSS meeting. As interest in this network continues to grow, the new Women in Weed Science (WiWS) sub-committee would like to invite you to our first ever summer, virtual event on Thursday, August 11 at 2:00 pm EDT (1:00 pm CDT). Dr. Anita Dille, Professor of Weed Ecology at Kansas State University, past president of both NCWSS and WSSA, and founder of the WiWS breakfasts, will share her journey including work-life balance and reflections on what she wishes she knew earlier in her career and as a student. After Dr. Dille’s presentation there will be time for questions and discussion amongst attendees. Everyone is welcome, regardless of gender or membership to the society.

WEED BINGO IS HERE!

Weed Bingo is for sale in the NCWSS store!

WEED BINGO is a fun game that blends a bit of science with interesting and unusual facts about some of the world’s most common and troublesome weeds. Each of the 42 weed cards included in our game includes the common and scientific name of a weed, a photo and a brief description.

WEED BINGO would make a great holiday gift!  The games are a fun educational tool that will help raise awareness weeds and invasive plants in managed and natural ecosystems.

WEED BINGO is produced by the Weed Science Society of America, with support from the Aquatic Plant Management Society, North Central Weed Science Society, Northeastern Weed Science Society, Southern Weed Science Society and Western Society of Weed Science. Each game is $14.95 + $5 shipping and handling for domestic shipping.
