Learn about the New Invaders Watch Program and how to get involved in monitoring and reporting invasive plants that are new to our region. Participants will learn how to identify species that threaten our natural areas. We will review how to monitor and report new population(s) on the New Invaders Watch Program website (www.NewInvaders.org), and how this program results in on-the-ground control of many early detection plant populations.
