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 34 target species that threaten our natural areas. Trainers will review how participants can get involved in monitoring, how to report new population 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.
