In 2010, the journal Invasive Plant Science and Management published a study that concluded trained dogs could smell and detect twice the number of invasive plants that humans could observe with their eyes. The addition of conservation dogs to the Trail Conference’s Invasives Strike Force (ISF) increases both the quality and quantity of our invasive surveys. Dogs help us find unknown infested sites, establish infestation borders, and detect hard to find individuals that could lead to persisting infestations.
Join us for a Conservation Dog demonstration at the upper parking lot of Ramapo Mountain State Forest.
