Educator Resources

We are excited to have iMapInvasives used in the classroom - the online tool is a great way to engage students through technology, and the data collected goes to the NYS state database to help natural resource professionals.  Feel free to contact us to discuss how to conduct an iMap project with your students.

If you would like more information about Online Identification Guides or Species Tutorials, please visit our Resources pages.
