Mapping, Tracking and Removing Invasive Species
Date Posted: May 2, 2017
Invasive species cause a lot of damage to native species and their habitat. A seminar on Phragmites on April 28th at Canador College brought that home to a packed room of people from the municipalities, other levels of government, lake associations and concerned citizens. To report what you think is an invasive species from your mobile device use the app www.EDDMapS.org/ONTARIO or email photos, location and description to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-563-7711 The info will be verified and mapped. The next step is to put together a plan to tackle the problem if possible. Thanks for your help.
