In this first-level course, you will learn everything you need to know in order to become an Invasives Strike Force Standard Surveyor. 

You'll learn how to identify 14 common invasive plants, collect data, and use a GPS  unit. GPS units can be borrowed from the Trail Conference or you may use your own or your smartphone. After completing training, you will be assigned to a trail section about 2 miles long.  You will be expected to walk your trail section while identifying and mapping these invasive plants.  Surveying should be completed by the end of the summer.

This workshop consists of an intensive class-room style training session in the morning with an outdoor practice component in the afternoon.
