Invasives Strike Force Training: Trail U 1088

Workshop Number: 
As an Invasives Strike Force volunteer you will learn how to identify 14 common invasive plants, collect data for the ISF, and use a GPS unit. GPS units can be borrowed from the Trail Conference or you may use your own or your smartphone. After completing training, you will be assigned to a trail section about 2 miles long.  You will be expected to walk your trail section while identifying and mapping these invasive plants. This data collection can be completed within one outing or over several trips until you feel confident that you have identified all of the target species along your trail, but should be completed by the end of the summer. After you have completed your trail section, you can ask to have another section assigned to you. You can map as many trail sections during the season as you have time for. Or, you may prefer to learn the second set of invasive species and move on to Phase 2 mapping.   This workshop is an intensive class-room style training session with an outdoor practice component.
