Can you believe we’re already in August? With so many uprooted invasives to show for it, you’d never guess that our field season is only halfway over already! Speaking of, why don’t we take a moment and see what exactly SSISC’s hard-working field crew has been up to.

Check out this massive Giant Hogweed, towering over Erin! Her and Ardis really had their work cut out for them this time around. Find more details over at our Instagram account!

Not all fieldwork is intense labour! Here, we caught Ardis and Erin out updating our invasive species inventory in the Crumpit Woods area. Learn more about their experience from our Instagram post.

When a hot day hits, Austin and Erin sure are lucky to be near the water! Searching for Yellow Flag Iris along the River of Golden Dreams, these two had an awesome, invasive-free day out in the field! Be sure to head over to our Instagram for more details.
