Thanks to your hard work, garlic mustard was the third most documented species in the project and Japanese knotweed was the sixth. See more of the Challenge results at:

This is a continuous data collection project, meaning your observations will contribute to an important research and land management efforts throughout the year. Let's keep up the momentum and observe even more occurrences of our local non-native and invasive plants!
