May EcoQuest: Up In Flames


Event Description

Join the May EcoQuest: Up In Flames. Find and map as many wildfire fueling invasive plants as possible.

Wildfires are getting bigger, burning hotter and happening more frequently. One of the contributing factors for this is invasive plant species that provide fuel for fire. Observations from this EcoQuest can help map these invasives and contribute to the efforts of Desert Defenders. 

This month’s EcoQuest is in collaboration with Desert Defenders. Desert Defenders is a citizen science program focused on finding, mapping and removing invasive species at local parks and preserves. The plant species they focus on are known to have a moderate to severe impact on local ecosystems and communities. Learn more about and join Desert Defenders.
