It is important to consider not only the economic and social benefits of these species, but the potential risks associated with their introduction and propagation. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Center for Invasive Plant Management announce a new e-learning website aimed at engaging volunteers and the public in invasive plant issues and management.
Designed for National Wildlife Refuge volunteers and Friends groups, the website provides science-based, introductory information that is suitable for anyone interested in learning about invasive plants. The five self-study modules address the purpose and history of the Refuge System, how volunteers help in invasive plant management, how refuges manage invasive plants, and tips for community outreach.
Each module contains a quiz and web-based resources that enable learners to explore topics more thoroughly.
The website is part of a larger program carried out by the U. This program includes competitive grants and training in how to map invasive plant infestations using hand-held computers and GPS devices.
