Do you want to help slow down the spread of harmful invasive species and reduce their ecological and economic damage? The first step is to locate where invaders have arrived and get that information to those who can do something about it. That’s where citizen scientists come in. Citizen scientists are volunteers who receive expert training to identify and track important invaders in our area. To become a citizen scientist attend a one-day workshop on February 26, 2011.
This training is being offered by the Lady Bird Wildflower Center and is co-sponsored by the Hays County Extension Office, San Marcos Greenbelt Alliance and Hays County Master Naturalists. Learn more about what the training is and what it covers here: http://www.texasinvasives.org/invaders/become.php. The site also includes lesson plans for teachers. Contact Lance Jones ([email protected]) with questions.
