Invasive plant species can cause a disproportionate amount of damage to native species. Stanley Park is especially vulnerable to invasive plants, due to the cumulative pressures of climate change and urbanization. In this project, we use a data-driven approach to strategically manage the spread of invasive plants. To do so, a citizen science database is used to delineate zones of high invasive plant densities, and pinpoint areas in need of active worksites.
