iMapInvasives combines citizen reports from the field with larger databases maintained by state agencies and nonprofits, allowing users to make real contributions to public scientific knowledge on invasives.
Originally launched in a handful of states, including New York, it has national ambitions. In New York State, the iMapInvasives project is being run by the New York Natural Heritage Program (NYNHP), a collaboration between the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the Nature Conservancy.
The two-hour program is being held Tuesday August 21st at 5:30 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. and is being hosted by Katlynn Marina located at 7448 New York 14 Sodus Point.
There are three parts to the training program.
All participants will receive the new “Aquatic and Terrestrial Invasive Species Guide Book” provided by Wayne County Soil and Water Conservation District (WCSWCD).
