Terrestrial Invasive Species Mapping  

​The purpose of the program is to take inventory of terrestrial invasive plants growing within King Township using King mapping software. The objective of the program is to identify which invasive species are growing throughout King and the severity of the infestation. The program is focused on educating the community while providing an opportunity for the public to get involved and participate in the mapping of invasive species. Mapping the distribution of invasive species will help Township staff monitor and mitigate the spread of invasive plants throughout the municipality. The program will allow us to identify what plants are present within King, the location of the species, the presence of certain plant communities, control methods and the severity of the infestation and public health concerns.
