Let’s Use Eddmaps: Invasives Species Identification and Reporting Training
March 2, 2022
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Join invasive species expert Matt Wallrath of Upper Sugar River Watershed Association for this training on identifying and reporting invasive species! Matt will explain why invasive species are a problem for our environmental and economic health with a focus on how we can prevent them in our region. Five species of disturbed areas and roadsides (wild parsnip, teasel, purple loosestrife, invasive knotweed, and non-native phragmites) will be presented for identification and best management practices. The Early Detection & Distribution Mapping System (EDDMapS), Eddmaps.org, and the mobile EDDMapS apps will be presented as a tool to scout, map, and communicate site management priorities for volunteer leaders.
