Welcome to the
Cal-IPC Student Section!

¡Bienvenido a la Sección de Estudiantes de Cal-IPC!

We created this blog to be place for students and early career professionals to connect with each other, share best practices, provide professional resources and talk about all things invasive species.

We hope this blog can provide info on invasive plant management and careers in conservation. We also intend for this blog to be an inclusive, welcoming space for students and early career professionals to connect with each other and spark ideas and conversations about invasive species management. 

To learn more about who we are and what we do, check out the Meet the Student Section tab.

Interested in career opportunities and resources related to invasive species and conservation? Check out our Opportunities page!
