I am the Watershed Specialist for the Crawford County (PA) Conservation District and currently a Western Region Director for the Pennsylvania Lake Management Society.

Part of my job is supporting early detection and rapid response for new infestations of aquatic invasive species in Crawford County. I also support efforts in surrounding counties in northwest Pennsylvania. We could always use help in spotting new invaders, as well as new locations for existing species.

Please consider helping us by contributing to the Aquatic Invasive Plant Survey (NW Pennsylvania) https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/aquatic-invasive-plant-survey-nw-pennsylvania?tab=observations

Remember, clear closeup photos as well as a broader photo of an infestation are both helpful in making a positive identification. Also, something in the frame to help with scale is important.
