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 NS state database to help natural resource professionals. Contact us for more information.

Are you a middle school or high school science teacher that would like to explore invasive species with your class?  In partnership with iMapInvasives, the DEC has developed an invasive species curriculum for students in 6th-12th grade.
