How has this Project Benefited Invasive Species Management Efforts at Your Station? Project in on-going and to be implemented in 2007. Having an organized format (RLGIS) for all GIS data on refuge, specifically invasive weeds, will allow for the most efficient adaptive IMP implementation.
What are some of the Lessons Learned and/or Troubleshooting Points that could be Shared with Others Engaged in Similar Activity?
John will be attending the "Train the Trainer" RLGIS training in Colorado in February 2007. Based on his personal schedule, this training could potentially be shared with other stations within the FWS.
