About The Event
Hosted by: Bridget Gregg, Master Gardener Program Coordinator & Ecologist Lauren Kuehne
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 in person with the option to attend via Zoom. Participants also 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.
**** This training is limited to Streamkeepers and Master Gardeners, but if you are interested please register and send an email to email@example.com to get the details.
You will receive a Zoom link for the webinar via email as we approach the date, so please check your junk email.
