Description

About this project The Copper River Watershed Project (CRWP) is mapping, monitoring, and treating invasive plants across the Copper River watershed to help prevent the spread into our pristine ecosystem. Project goal Learn more about invasive plants in the Copper River watershed and the work the CRWP is doing to manage them. What participants do Help the Copper River Watershed Project track and remove invasive plant populations by reporting new sightings. One of the main programs at the CRWP is the Invasive Plant Program. Since 2010 staff have been mapping, monitoring, and treating invasive plants across the Copper River watershed. Explore this dataset to learn more about where, when, and which species have been monitored and treated over the last decade. We also want your help! The Copper River watershed is large (26,500 square miles) and we're asking for your assistance in tracking new infestations of invasive pants. If you see invasive plants use this project to report which species it is and where you found it. Please include a picture if possible. Our high priority invasive plant targets are reed canarygrass, orange hawkweed, bird vetch, white sweetclover, and oxeye daisy. For more information visit our website. For more information about invasive plants in Alaska, visit the Alaska Center for Conservation Science's Alaska Exotic Plants Information Clearinghouse (AKEPIC).

Data Records

Project Data

Anecdata is a free online citizen science platform developed by the Community Lab at the MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine. Anecdata is used by hundreds of individuals and organizations to gather and access citizen science observations and provides a platform to easily collect, manage, and share their citizen science data. How Anecdata works: Project managers create projects, creating datasheets that participants fill out to share their observations. Participants join projects and use the Anecdata website or mobile app to share their observations with the project. Project data is now available for anyone to view and download!
