1,000 Citizens Scientist Volunteers

Fighting invasive species is the other side of the coin for conservation and habitat restoration. Read the article 'Save the Native Plants' on the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower's website to see how they have used multiple approaches to make their conservation program work. This includes training over 1,000 volunteers to report and map more than 12,000 invasive plant sitings in Texas.
