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.
