See it! Map it! Learn to use Ontario’s Invasive Species App

Please join us at Arbourview Park (meeting at parking lot at Reeves Gate at Upper Middle) to learn how to use the EDDMapS App to report invasive species.

Register for this event by emailing programs@oakvillegreen.org.

Participants should download the “EDDMapS Ontario” application from the App Store or Google Play (not available on BlackBerry) before the event and create a login username and password. You don’t need to use data in the field (save reports and submit when on wifi) but pre-downloading the app will save a hefty data bill.
