The project builds on previous funding to work with volunteers to manage weeds. Our hope is train volunteers in the use of GPS units, map the extent of specific weed infestations, create a georeferenced database, release biocontrol agents, and monitor the effectiveness of control efforts.

How useful was this program for meeting refuge invasive species objectives and how can it be improved?
every bit of funding helps however, receiving the funds in June makes planning and implementation complicated. It would be most helpful if regions fully funded a few projects versus providing a small amount of money to several.
