Enhance early detection efforts for priority invasive species. Priority species are known to be in low abundance or are not yet known to be present in the SLELO region but are in close proximity or a direct pathway of introduction has been identified. Finding species populations early when they are small makes them easier to control or eradicate.
Join a VSN training to recognize and report observations to iMapInvasives.
Adopt a site or visit your favorite hiking trails and paddle-ways to monitor for and report priority invasive species.
