The Center Teaches EDDMapS Training Workshop for Six Rivers CISMA

Karan Rawlins, Invasive Species Coordinator at the University of Georgia's Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health, taught an EDDMapS training workshop for Six Rivers CISMA in Florida last week. The workshop took place at the University of West Florida in Pensacola, FL. Nineteen people attended the workshop. The workshop included a field trip in which attendees located invasive species in their area, mapped the invader using a GPS device, and learned to upload the information into EDDMapS (www.eddmaps.org).
