Members of the public can now play a role in tracking invasive species on land and in the water in the Quinte region.
There are a number of invasive plants found in wood lots of the area and Quinte Conservation wants to help the public learn about them.
Spokesperson Jennifer May-Anderson says, for instance, the “dog strangling vine” looks like milkweed and is a problem for monarch butterflies.
May-Anderson says there is a new App for people to report invasive species.
She says Quinte Conservation has had a problem with dog strangling vine and last year had students dealing with it.
She said they also have a problem with European buckthorn at Massassauga Point.
Quinte Conservation is holding an information meeting at its office at 7 p.m. Thursday.
