Website 67 participants 186 spottings

To raise awareness of the impact of non-native and invasive species in the natural and wild places of the Southeast by identifying and documenting specimens when and where they are encountered. As per Executive Order 13112 an "invasive species" is defined as a species that is: 1) non-native (or alien) to the ecosystem under consideration and 2) whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health. Invasive species can be plants, animals, and other organisms (e.g., microbes). Human actions are the primary means of invasive species introductions.
