Talk on Mapping Invasive Species this weekend

From the Sierra Club:

Since 1995, Jil Swearingen has worked as an Integrated Pest Management and Invasive Species Specialist for the National Park Service's National Capital Region, Center for Urban Ecology in Washington DC. Mapping is fundamental for planning control projects, tracking management efforts, and identifying new introductions. Nearly 300 invasive plant species occur in the mid-Atlantic region. Jil will talk about the new Early Detection Distribution Mapping System that helps invasive plant workers report and track invasive plant infestations.

The talk will be held on Sunday, Feb. 21 from 2pm-3:30pm at the Rockville Library, 21 Maryland Ave., Rockville.

Free and open to the public.

RSVP or 301-351-6985.
