Aquatic Invasive Plant Identification and Survey Training – Bolton Landing @ Darrin Freshwater Institute
Jun 19 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

The APIPP Invasive Plant Identification and Monitoring Techniques Training will train participants on how to identify aquatic invasive plants such as Eurasian watermilfoil, water chestnut and hydrilla, as well as how to perform simple surveys to detect their presence in a waterbody. Detecting infestations early can lead to removal when the chance of successful eradication is highest. Hundreds of citizens are needed to be on the look-out for aquatic invasive species infestations. To-date, nearly 800 citizens have volunteered to survey over 350 waterbodies. Their participation each year in APIPP’s early detection program, now in its sixteenth year, has established a baseline to better understand the distribution of infested and invasive-free waterways.

Following this training will be an iMap Invasives Training. See details in the training event page.

New York iMapInvasives Training @ Darrin Freshwater Institute
Jun 19 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

The iMapInvasives Training will cover the basics of reporting new locations and finding the information you need from the maps and queries.  iMapInvasives is an online mapping tool that supports efforts to protect New York State from invasive species. All interested groups, from natural resource managers to the general public, are encouraged to help keep the NYS map up-to-date and accurate by reporting invasive species locations through the online maps or the mobile app.
