Event description

Description

Oriental Bittersweet (OB) is an invasive species that is becoming an increasing threat on the riverway. It is a vine that can choke out native species and displace other vegetation.

There will be a half hour training followed by monitoring on the river.

Training will cover:

  • OB Identification

  • Mapping OB on GPS Units

  • What information is needed on Data Sheet for each GPS point

Supplies will be provided: Kayaks, Paddles, PFDs, GPS Units, Water bottles, Data Sheets, and Suncreen

Volunteers will be able to register for monitoring the river shoreline by powerboat, pontoon or kayak.

Please bring lunch/snacks for the River and dress appropriately!

Rain date: Friday, October 27th
