Ohio Invasive Plants Council

Strengthing the Bridge between Research & Management

OIPC's annual meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 21, 2013 at Highbanks Metro Park in Lewis Center, OH (just north of Columbus).

OIPC promotes public awareness of invasive species issues and encourages land management and research to detect invasive species and prevent new invasions into natural ecosystems.
