Invasives Strike Force EcoQuest Challenge: September 2020

Do you love being outdoors and searching for interesting critters and plants in nature? Or maybe you love taking photos when you are out hiking or gardening? Or maybe you just love scavenger hunts! Our EcoQuest surveys allow you to become a part of the action and help us document invasive species in our region while having fun in the process!

The first step in becoming an EcoQuest surveyor is to register for the challenges by clicking on the "Sign up now" below or above right. Once you are registered, you will receive a monthly email from Invasive Species Citizen Science Coordinator, Brent Boscarino, with information on a focal species (or two!) to be on the lookout for, photograph and upload to the citizen science database, iNaturalist.

This month's challenge species/focus is: beech leaves (particularly those looking stressed and diseased)
