Invasive Species Awareness Week Activities

The Cayuga County WQMA hosted two iMapInvasives classes and an invasive species identification presentation as part of NY Invasive Species Awareness Week.  Five people were trained during the first iMapInvasives class and four were trained during the second.  These classes also included a presentation on invasive species identification.  One person thought they may have found jumping worm in Cayuga County, which would be the first report of this species in the county.

The invasive species identification presentation for the first iMapInvasives class was scheduled so it was also given to the Cayuga County WQMA.

Thank you to the Finger Lakes PRISM for providing educational materials. Portions of this project were funded by a grant from the NYSDEC EPF to the Finger Lakes – Lake Ontario Watershed Protection Alliance. Thank you also to the IMapInvasives Trainers Network for their assistance.
