Weeds and EDDMaps Workshop

Join Greenview Agricultural Services for an evening learning about weed identification and EDDMaps!
Invasive species are the second greatest threat to biodiversity and are estimated to cost Albertans over $2 billion per year. Everyone has a role to play in protecting Alberta from the impacts of invasive species.

Our guest speaker will be Megan Evans, Megan is a terrestrial ecologist with over ten years in the field. She is passionate about protecting biodiversity, especially our native plants and pollinators. She contributes to those efforts through her work as the Executive Director of the Alberta Invasive Species Council and as the President of the Alberta Native Bee Council. Megan will be giving a presentation about common weeds in the area, how to identify them, and how to track them through EDDMapS.

Join us for an interactive event to learn how to identify and report invasive species using the Alberta Invasive Species Council’s Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System (EDDMapS) app. No previous experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn and a smartphone or tablet!
