This is just copied text for TEST ONE. You can help protect the local environment by becoming an Invasive Species Citizen Scientist. Invasive species crowd out native species and control measures risk degrading our soil and water resources. Collect data, report your results, and make a difference!
After training, volunteers may monitor as few or as many times as they like, visiting the same or a new spot each time. This project may be suitable for interested middle and high school students and adults from all walks of life. No prior experience necessary. This program is in partnership with Clark Green Neighbors.
Participants attend two 90-minute trainings sessions (via Zoom) and learn to identify three invasive insects and three invasive weeds that threaten Clark County’s plant diversity.
- Learn about the impact of invasive plants and insects on our native habitat and agricultural industry
- Learn to identify three invasive plants and three invasive insects already found or expected to arrive in our areas.
- Carry out real-world searches for invasive species surveillance and collect reportable data.
- Play a role (if specimens are found) in alerting authorities on the presence of noxious plants and may be early detectors of invasive insects.
Attend one or both — but you must register separately for each training.
Future class registration will be announced in the Upcoming Workshops & Events section above when they are scheduled.
