Invasive Species Volunteer Surveillance Network VSN

Discovering populations of invasive species before they become too large to manage, known as Early Detection (ED), gives a strategic advantage to prevention and management initiatives. ED greatly reduces the negative impacts that invasive species can cause to the environment, economy and/or human health and can help reduce management costs.

Nearly40% of new invasive species infestations are found by volunteers who have learned to identify & report invasive species
