The NCWMA hosts a variety of programs to raise awareness about invasive species. We work with audiences of all ages and backgrounds, including school groups, community organizations, and professionals. Some of our programs involve hands-on removal of invasive plants, while others provide an opportunity to exchange information and resources to help us combat invasives. If you would like to partner with the NCWMA to host an event, or would like more information on an event, please contact us.
When: April 10th at 9 am
Where: GLIFWC Office

Knowing where populations of invasive species occur is essential in treating them. Learn how to use a app on your phone to gather and share invasive species site information in a consistent manner. Bring a cell phone! The KoBoCollect app works best on Android phones, but it can be used on Apple too.
The training will explain how to collect data with KoBoToolbox and the KoBoCollect app. The Great Lakes Indian Fish and Wildlife Commission (GLIFWC) uses this free open source software from KoBoToolbox to record invasive species survey and management efforts in the field on mobile phones. This software allows multiple users to collect information in the field and upload it to a free online account which aggregates and summarizes the data, which is then available for download in multiple formats. This workshop will provide a demo of how to use this free software on mobile devices, and we will discuss options for creating a NCWMA account to aggregate invasive species information from each partner throughout the NCWMA.
