WILD SPOTTER™ – A New National Effort to Increase Citizen Science Capacity to Map Invasive Species in America’s Wild Places.

In partnership with Wildlife Forever, USDA Forest Service, and other organizations across the United States,  the University of Georgia – Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health has launched a nationwide citizen science volunteer capacity-building program called Wild Spotter.  Designed to help locate and map aquatic and terrestrial invasive species in Wilderness Areas, Wild & Scenic Rivers, and other wild places across the 193 million-acre National Forest System, this new program engages and empowers the public, local communities, states, tribes, and many other groups to help the Forest Service confront the threats from harmful exotic plants, animals, and pathogens that invade America’s beautiful and economically important wild places.  The Wild Spotter program provides the tools these volunteers need to help locate, quantify, map, and report invasive species infestations in a simple and effective manner, while raising public awareness about invasive species and promoting collaborations across the landscape.

Register for a webinar on Wild Spotter: Mapping Invasives in America’s Wild Places on Jul 26, 2018 3:00 PM EDT at:  https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/8187228954700337155 Continue reading
