Online Map of Volunteer Projects

Are you working on a volunteer project to address invasive plants? Please add your organization and site(s) to the map! (Just click on the map below to get started.) Volunteer groups have begun adding their invasive plant management projects to an online map, with brief descriptions of the project. This allows volunteers to see what efforts are going on near them and who else is working on particular plants of concern. Instructions for adding your projects to the Wildland Volunteer Map!
