Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

The National Park Service's Integrated Pest Management webinar series will focus on Museum Integrated Pest Management in November! For the month, we will have 3 live presentations on the intro and history of museum IPM, pest threats from wood-borers and protein/cellulose consumers, and pest threats from omnivores and rodents.

These sessions will all be presented by a special guest, Carol DiSalvo, retired national NPS IPM program coordinator.  

A public facing website on the NPS Common Learning Portal will be updated and live in a couple of days, so feel free to share the link (https://mylearning.nps.gov/training-courses/integrated-pest-management-virtual-training-series/) with partners in the coming days! Or you can find the recordings on the IPM Playlist directly on YouTube here (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLVTxS3kud19RhQAWh3wlxWSAcAJrzFZbX). 

Feel free to send any questions or topic suggestions to this email address, IPM@nps.gov.
