Invasive Species Identified! at FLCC Muller Field Station, Honeoye, NY


Join the Finger Lakes Institute and Finger Lakes PRISM in a hands-on exploration of aquatic and terrestrial invasive species during a two-day teacher training, July 10-11, 2017.  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 and survey methods of common terrestrial and aquatic invasives, as well as use of the online, GIS-based citizen science mapping tool called iMapInvasives. Teachers will work together on strategies for curricular integration into their existing science curricula.

The training is free and open to elementary through high school science educators in the Finger Lakes region. Teachers will receive free field identification guides for both aquatic and terrestrial invasive species, will be registered with a free iMapInvasives account and will receive a certificate for 14 hours of professional development.  Registration is limited to 15 participants. To register, click below!


This training is part of the 2017 New York State Invasive Species Awareness Week and will also be held at Wells College in Aurora, NY on July 18-19, 2017. For more information about the Wells College training, click here.
