This workshop is a collaboration between EcoSpark, the Early Detection & Rapid Response (EDRR) Network Ontario, Credit Valley Conservation and the Riverwood Conservancy



The Early Detection & Rapid Response (EDRR) Network Ontario project trains and equips volunteers with the skills and resources needed to better detect and reduce invasive species in Ontario, one community at a time. The EDRR is a partnership between the Invasive Species Centre and the Ontario Invasive Plant Council.

This project will help move invasive species knowledge and action outside of expert circles by arming volunteers with awareness, knowledge and tools to undertake on-the-ground projects in the community. Together, we will increase the awareness of invasive species and support hands-on work to detect them and reduce their impacts.

This workshop is generously supported by the Ontario Trillium Foundation
