Vital Signs brings scientists and novices together to investigate species - particularly invasive species - in Maine.
People can participate in many ways: going outside to look for and document invasive and native species with digital images, location and habitat observations; then entering their observations into our online application; and commenting on shared observations from the comfort of their own homes.
