Invasive Species Problem Defined for Community Scientists of the Columbia Land Conservancy
June 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The two-part program for invasive species awareness and identification will feature an online training program coupled with an in-the-field training with regional experts from the Capital Region PRISM, a Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. Participants attending the online tutorial can expect to receive an in-depth look at how invasive species are problematic to our native flora and fauna. The program will include a brief introduction to the desk top version of iMap Invasives and the mobile app for reporting species. The iMapInvasives Mobile app preferences will be set up and tailored for use on CLC properties.
The program is intended to build foundational knowledge for an in-the-field workshop for plant identification and reporting on June 17th, 2023, at the CLC Overmountain property. As a community scientist uploading invasive species to the iMapInvasives state-run database, you will help make conservation-based management decisions in the future for the Columbia Land Conservancy.
