Invasive Plant ID & iMapInvasives Training

June 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

 
Learn how to identify some of western New York’s common and priority invasive plant species, how to report your observations and why doing so can help protect our natural areas. During the indoor portion, attendees will learn how to identify invasive plant species and how to use the iMapInvasives mobile app. During the outdoor portion, participants will practice identifying plants and submitting reports to iMapInvasives. 
 
The objective of this training is to provide specific information to professionals, community scientists and the public so they can effectively identify and report invasive plant species in parks and other natural areas, or even in their own backyards. WNY PRISM’s Best Management Practices guides will also be available for attendees who are interested in learning how to manage specific species. 
 
Registration is required by Thursday, May 30, 2024. Please register at https://bit.ly/2024invasiveplantID. This training will be limited to 40 participants. Attendees are encouraged to dress for the weather, wear sturdy footwear and bring water. 
 
This free training is part of New York’s Invasive Species Awareness Week and is hosted by WNY PRISM in partnership with Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve and the Friends of Reinstein Woods.
