Mid-Atlantic Early Detection Network: 
How you can help defeat invasive species!

Invasive species are an unfortunate reality.  Not only do we already have many species that have become pests, but it is inevitable that new pests will be introduced.  Despite this bleak outlook, we can work together to combat invasive species and help minimize their impact on our environments.  This webinar will focus on the Mid-Atlantic Early Detection Network and how you can help to fight invasive species. 

Speaker Bio

His main focus is to provide easy-to-use technology-based solutions to facilitate the communication needed for effective pest management.
