Invasive Species Identified!
Exploring Ways Teachers and Students Can Become Invasive Species Citizen Scientists  


Join the Finger Lakes Institute and Finger Lakes PRISM in a hands-on exploration of terrestrial and aquatic invasive species during a three-day teacher training, July 7-9, 2014.  Teachers will learn about the history of invasives in the Finger Lakes region and their effects on local ecosystems, regional economics and human health.  Hands-on training will be provided for field identification of common terrestrial and aquatic invasives as well as use of the online, GIS-based citizen science mapping tool called iMapInvasives. Field identification and mapping techniques will be used to create classroom curriculum and citizen science projects models.

The training is free and open to elementary through high school science educators in the Finger Lakes region.  The workshop will be held at the Finger Lakes Institute in Geneva, NY on July 7th and at FLCC Muller Field Station in Honeoye, NY on July 8th and 9th.  Registration is limited to 15 participants.

     This training is part of the 2014 New York Invasive Species Awareness Week.
