About the Program
The Pacific Northwest Invasive Plant Council (PNW IPC) is a non-profit conservation organization ( working in partnership with National Forests and Parks, Washington Dept. of Agriculture (WSDA), Department of Natural Resources (DNR), county noxious weed programs, and other local groups on a Citizen Science EDRR (Early Detection Rapid Response) program. We are gearing up for our eighth year to search for priority and newly emerging invasive plants in our National Forests, National Parks and other public lands. If you are recreating and/or working on public lands and are interested in participating in our program and/or would like to learn more about invasive plants, you are invited to attend one of our FREE upcoming trainings. 

Citizen Science EDRR Volunteer Training
We offer a 2.5 hour training where you will learn how to identify priority invasive species, how to record basic data and how to report findings on EDDMapSWest, a national early detection reporting system. Participants learn plant identification through a PowerPoint presentation and live material. Participants also learn methods of manual removal and which species you should not attempt to remove. Trainings will equip volunteers with the knowledge necessary to conduct invasive plant surveys in order to support local land managers that need your help. Your efforts will directly support the maintenance of healthy ecosystems. Volunteers will receive an invasive plant identification booklet along with survey forms. We ask that volunteers who sign up conduct 1-2 surveys over the field season.
