About The Event
Hosted by: Jennifer Mendoza with Cowlitz County Noxious Weed Control Program
This is a free 2.5 to 3 hour training where you will learn how to identify priority invasive species, how to record basic data and how to report findings on EDDMapS, a national early detection reporting system. Participants learn plant identification through a live training that will be broadcasted on a Zoom Webinar, and learn methods of manual removal and which species you should not attempt to remove. This training will equip you with the knowledge necessary to conduct invasive plant surveys in order to support local land managers that need your help. Your efforts will directly support the maintenance of healthy ecosystems.
Upon request, you will receive an invasive plant identification booklet along with survey forms. We ask that volunteers who sign up conduct 1-2 surveys over the field season. You can do this while walking your dog, or while you are enjoying a nature walk!
We are planning to host a hybrid training where some participants can join us live while others can view via Zoom.
