Welcome to the first ever
New York Invasive Species Awareness Week 
Mapping Challenge

Challenge extended through June 19th!

During the 2022 NY Invasive Species Awareness Week (June 6-12), we are launching the first ever NYISAW Mapping Challenge, which will run from June 6-19!


We challenge you to get out and map spotted lanternfly, and the focus species for your PRISM (Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management).​


​Check which PRISM you are in, and learn more about your region’s focus species by clicking the links in the dashboard, or watching our playlist!​


Go outside and check for spotted lanternfly and your region's focal species.


Report back to iMap whether or not you find it!

The top iMap observers for spotted lanternfly and the focal species for each PRISM (including presence and not-detected records) will win a prize from the NYSDEC!
