Have You Shared on Social Media?

The fastest way to fill in our map is if you share the link to this project with your friends and group on social media! I know we have some corners of the state out there that may have TOH and so are at risk if spotted lanternfly is introduced in Oregon. Let's find them all!

Thank-you Naturalists!!

This project is growing by leaps and bounds thanks to all your work! Please help spread the word about it via social media, etc. to help us get observations of TOH from all around the state. Keeping the buzz up will help strengthen protections against spotted lanternfly!

Will Today Be the Day?

Will we hit the 100 observations mark just one week into this bio-blitz? We've got a good feeling about that thanks to all of you who are stepping up big time to get this project MOVING! A special shout-out to @lburman and @jerminator for getting in those east side observations. More please!

The Distribution Map Is Growing!

There are no words to describe how excited we are at how the numbers of tree-of-heaven identifications are growing! A huge thanks naturalists, and keep up the good work logging in your finds and verifying the work of others. We especially appreciate the extra photos that show the leaves closer up and the heart-shape scars on the bark of young trees to help with verification. You rock!!

Leaf Photos are Key!

Don't forget to add in a photo of leaf detail along with your tree photos - this will help others confirm your ID and bump your observation up to research grade. Every confirmed siting is one step closer in keeping spotted lanternfly at bay in Oregon!
