Madras & Prineville Invasive Species Training
Time & Location
About The Event
Hosted by: Debbie Wood, Crooked River Weed Management Area
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 EDDMapSWest, a national early detection reporting system. Participants learn plant identification through a PowerPoint presentation and live material. 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.
The week after the training, you will have an opportunity to test your new skills with Debbie and Jim in the field at Smith Rock.
You will receive a zoom link for the webinar via email as we approach the date, so please check your junk email.
