Volunteer Surveillance Network Virtual Trainings
September 1, 2021 - January 1, 2023
Training times are flexible
The SLELO PRISM’s invasive species Volunteer Surveillance Network (VSN) is intended to recruit and train volunteers to recognize and report invasive species that are in low abundance or within close proximity to the St. Lawrence Eastern Lake Ontario Region boundaries (Oneida, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence).
This training is intended for new VSN members or for existing members who may need a refresher on how to recognize the priority species and report observations to iMapInvasives.
