How has this Project Benefited Invasive Species Management Efforts at Your Station? We have gotten a more accurate picture of the weed problem with the help of the volunteers. Their time is used mainly out in the field and gets us, land managers, eyes out there to find these small new infestations. They also have worked on the eradicaion in many cases.
What are some of the Lessons Learned and/or Troubleshooting Points that could be Shared with Others Engaged in Similar Activity?
