Data from project included into iMapInvasives

Good morning!

I wanted to jump on board again with journal posts for the PA iMapInvasives project on iNaturalist. I apologize for the long delay since the last one.

I am excited to see so many observations added to our project (almost 7,500). This project aims to collect information on invasive species (plants, animals, insects) found in Pennsylvania. Data collected is later included in the online iMapInvasives database where it is used by a plethora of natural resource professionals as well as community scientists who have an interest in invasive species and learning of their known distributions in the Commonwealth.

If you know of other members on iNaturalist who are collecting invasive species data in Pennsylvania, please invite them to join our project so their data can be put into iMapInvasives as well.
