Bay Area Early Detection Network
[The BAEDN website was damaged by hackers.
An archived 2009 version of the website is available here.]
The Bay Area Early Detection Network (BAEDN) is a collaborative partnership of regional land managers, invasive species experts, and concerned citizens in the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. BAEDN selects regional priority species for eradication, including some naturalized non-native plant species that have not yet become invasive but that are deemed to be a future risk.
BAEDN has become a project of Cal-IPC, joining with other regional partnerships across the state working with Cal-IPC to prioritize eradication targets. Cal-IPC is supporting continued work on Bay Area populations that have been selected for eradication.
For more information on BAEDN, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Report invasive plant populations using the weed observation form on Calflora.
BAEDN and Friends of Five Creeks remove invasive sea lavender at the Albany marsh.
The BAEDN Steering Committee is a regional coordinating body for the 8 county Bay Area region. Members participate by representing their WMA and helping to set the direction and procure funding for strategic regional invasive plant efforts.
