LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — Experts will be gathering in La Crosse this week to share the latest information on invasive species.

The Upper Midwest Invasive Species Conference runs Monday through Wednesday. Attendees will learn the latest on Asian carp, emerald ash borer, and other invasive species threats. The event brings together researchers, land and water area managers, private property owners, consultants, students and concerned citizens who are interested in improving invasive species research, prevention and management.

The Invasive Plants Association of Wisconsin, the Midwest Invasive Plant Network, the Minnesota Invasive Species Advisory Council and the Wisconsin Invasive Species Council are hosting the conference. Several state and federal agencies are participating. Organizers expect about 500 people to attend.
