Invasive species are one of the biggest threats to our park’s ecosystem health. They outcompete native plants, decrease biodiversity and increase wildfire occurrences and magnitude. Join the Desert Defenders program to help us find and remove these plants!
This training will include an overview of the mobile app used by volunteers to map the invasive plants and a field training. Most of the time will be spent outdoors identifying plants.
