We hosted our very first Spotter’s Network Training Workshop this morning in Charlottetown. The turnout was excellent – beyond what we expected, which is great! Those who attended learned how to photograph potential invaders, how to identify priority species and how to report their sightings to us. It was a great morning, with lots of interesting conversations and questions from the audience.
As a result, we now have 30 newly trained invasive species spotters that will be prowling the island, on the lookout for NEW invasive species! Thank you to everyone who attended!
We will be posting our Spotter’s Network training materials as soon as we can get them online! And if you missed today’s workshop, don’t worry – we hope to host a couple more through the fall and winter.
