About The Event
Hosted by: Sharon Sorby, POC Weed Board Coordinator & Mary Malone Education, Pend Oreille County Noxious Weed Board Outreach Specialist
This is a free 3 hour hybrid training where you will learn how to identify and treat priority invasive species, how to report surveys on EDDMapS, a national early detection reporting system. Participants learn plant identification through an in person training with an option to attend via webinar.
After the presentation we will go outside and put some of your newfound skills to the test. You will 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.
If you choose to attend via webinar, you will receive a zoom link via email as we approach the date.
