Calling all water chestnut removal organizers! There is a state-wide effort to manage water chestnut and to capture efforts in iMapInvasives. This information is of interest to the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation and is being compiled by iMapInvasives into an interpretive dashboard intended to showcase efforts over time.
iMapInvaives is hosting a training on April 4th from 1 pm-3 pm intended to get all the water chestnut organizers across the state trained on how to report their removal efforts to iMap and to collaborate with their local PRISM to enhance regional water chestnut removal efforts. The entire training will be 2 hours and will include time to attend a breakout session led by PRISM AIS coordinators to discuss any needs for getting data into iMap.
Who should attend? PRISM partners and volunteers who organize water chestnut hand-pulls in New York State.
Agenda: may be subject to slight changes.
