The New York Natural Heritage Program has announced its 2017 schedule of training sessions for the iMapInvasives project. You can help fight invasive species issues around the state by identifying the locations and status of incidents of many types of invasives that threaten New York’s naturally occurring species and can cause problems such as erosion, massive mortality of trees, navigation difficulties in waterways and recreational access problems. So grab your smartphone or gps unit and pitch in.
Sessions are scheduled throughout the state, including here in the Catskills. Check it out.
