Stop the Invasion

Volunteers needed to survey invasive plants

The Cornell Cooperative Extension needs volunteers for a citizen-science survey of invasive species across the lower Hudson Valley using a cell phone or GPS unit. The data will help scientists and natural resource managers direct their efforts. The program is part of Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management efforts to stop the spread of invasive species.
