Using Spatial Data to Guide Invasive Species Control in Door County

There are many invasive plants and animals to be concerned about, and this team is working to inventory and control these threats.  When 15-foot-tall monster plants form large clones and dominate the Door County shoreline, you can see why action needs to be taken.

Invasive species pose an immense threat to biodiversity, and the Door County Invasive Species Team is working to combat these invaders.  The group is working with partners and volunteers to inventory and map invasive species throughout Door County using GPS devices and the Great Lakes Early Detection Network App.  This presentation will discuss how this data is being used to help prioritize efforts and increase public and municipal awareness and participation.

We hope you can join us October 11th and 12th in Sturgeon Bay!  Check out the links below to learn more about what we have planned.
