Knowing the location and extent of invasive species populations is important. It will allow CWIP and our partners to dedicate our limited resources to removing invasives that are isolated in specific areas before they spread further.
CWIP encourages the use of the GLEDN app to report locations of invasive species. For more information on submitting reports, see the Report a Species page. Information submitted to the GLEDN app is added to databases including EDDMapS and WISTIPP.
In the future, we plan on holding "Mapping Blitz" events where volunteers can get instruction and experience reporting invasive species. At these events, we hope our amazing volunteers will help us finish substantial surveys of roads and natural areas!
With the WISTIPP viewer, you can see the distribution of invasive plants. If you submit reports with the GLEDN app, the reports will eventually be visible on the WISTIPP viewer.
