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.
A training class will be held at the Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison from 3 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5. To register, visit putnam.cce.cornell.edu. For more information about this and other surveys, visit nynjtc.org/view/workshops.
