iMapInvasives training sessions offered statewide this spring!
iMapInvasives is an online mapping tool that supports efforts to protect New York State from invasive species. All interested groups, from land managers to the general public, are encouraged to help keep the NYS map up-to-date and accurate by reporting invasive species locations. Volunteers, citizen scientists, and educational groups will find the simple reporting interface perfect for local projects. And conservation professionals can use the advanced interface to manage detailed information about infestations, surveys, and treatments in a standardized format.
