Anyone that is interested in learning to identify plants, bug, trees and just spending time outside. Anywhere in the county - public lands, roadsides, rivers, lakes, your own backyard, year-round, at your leisure. We will provide you with materials and training to identify species, so that if you see an invasive while you're out and about, you can report it to us. If you are smart phone savvy, we can even show you hot to report the species with your phone!
The District is hoping to receive grant funding (along with other partner organizations) to manage invasive species in our county. Currently, other groups around the county are working to manage Phragmites and Eurasian watermill foil to keep our waterways clear. We can work together to prevent the spread of Quagga mussels, Phragmites, and other new invasives. We need your eyes out there to tell us where problems are so that we can get a handle on things. The more helpers, the better!
