The Invasive Plant Atlas of New England (IPANE) and the New England Wild Flower Society (NEWFS) are seeking citizen volunteers to help gather data on invasive plant species in their local area. The information gathered by volunteers is submitted via the IPANE website to a regional database. All data collected are available on-line in map and text form. The gathered information is then used for predictive ecological research and planning rapid response and control efforts. All necessary training is provided. In addition to training volunteers receive weekend workshops and educational courses provided by project staff at no charge.
Currently volunteers are active in all New England state with over 400 volunteer participating. Many more are needed to gather the necessary data and make the project a success. Individuals, school groups, scout troops, students, and clubs are all welcome to participate. An interest and working knowledge of invasive plants is helpful, but not required. More information and applications can be found at the IPANE website www.ipane.org.  Contact Bill Brumback or Ailene Kane if you have questions.
