Invasive Plant ID Videos for Wisconsin

The University of Wisconsin Cooperative extension has a YouTube channel with a number of videos on invasive plant identification. They focus on species found in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic area. Dr. Mark Renz, University of Wisconsin-Madison and his team want to help Wisconsin residents recognize species that are spreading along highway corridors. The videos are short and cover the basics of the plant's characteristics--good for those without much of any background in identification of invasive species.
Dr. Mark Renz, said that anyone can use the videos free for training purposes. Videos.
