Terrestrial Invasive Species ID and Survey Training @ Online via Zoom

Do you like to hike, camp, or spend time outdoors? Help APIPP better understand the distribution of terrestrial invasive species in backcountry areas of the Adirondacks. This two-hour virtual training provides participants with an introduction to the biology and identification of common terrestrial invasive species affecting the Adirondack region. Attendees will learn about New York’s iMapInvasives database and how to report occurrences of invasive species using the iMapInvasives mobile app.

Aquatic Invasive Species Identification and Survey Training @ Online via Zoom

This Aquatic Invasive Species Identification and Survey Training will teach participants how to identify APIPP’s target and watch aquatic invasive species such as Eurasian watermilfoil, hydrilla, and spiny waterflea, as well as how to perform simple surveys to detect their presence in a waterbody. Detecting infestations early can lead to removal when the likelihood of successful eradication is highest. To-date, over 800 citizens have volunteered to survey over 420 Adirondack waterbodies. Their participation each year has established baseline distribution information for the region which helps guide APIPP’s prevention and management efforts.
