Knotweed Blitz!11 AM–10:45 AM | Online | Public
Get your students involved in the Knotweed Blitz to help control the spread of this invasive plant.
How is knotweed affecting ecosystems in our area? How are knotweed populations changing as the climate warms?
Join our Knotweed Blitz with your students and become part of the effort to answer these questions. We'll kick off the blitz with a conversation with the project's lead scientist , Stacy Endriss from Cornell University, about why we need to work together to understand and manage this aggressive and invasive plant. You will work with your students to prepare for fieldwork, collect data, and then contribute your data to Project Knotweed, using curriculum resources from GMRI. Then, we'll come back together with the lead scientist and students and teachers from across the region to share observations and questions that came out of our work in the field.
Friday, 10/29, 11:00 - 11:45am - Project Introduction on Zoom (or watch the recording)
In between virtual sessions - Prepare, collect, and contribute data in your area. Your participation will be supported by curriculum resources provided by GMRI (coming soon!)
