Volunteer Training: Invasive Plant Patrol
August 5, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Join Coastal River’s Invasive Plant Patrol as part of a first-alert system to identify invasive aquatic plants in our lakes, streams and ponds
Invasive plants can cause tremendous loss of wildlife habitat, recreational and property damage. Identifying invasive plants before they spread is a critical component to protecting water quality.
Meet Coastal Rivers’ Director of Education and Citizen Science Sarah Gladu at the Pemaquid Pond Boat Ramp for an in-person training on how to conduct a survey (which can be done by boat or wading along the shore), how to complete a data sheet, and how to identify some of the most common native and invasive aquatic plants.
Once you register, you will receive a link to an introductory video to watch online in preparation for the in-person training. After the training, “IPPers” will organize into small teams and work through early October to monitor their assigned areas throughout the Pemaquid river and its chain of ponds.
