The Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council (MAIPC) provides regional leadership to effectively address the threat of invasive plants to the native flora, fauna, and natural habitats of the Mid-Atlantic. The council coordinates regional efforts to gather and share information on the identification, management and prevention of invasive species, provide training and volunteer opportunities and to identify research needs. The Council is represented by members from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia.

Mid-Atlantic Early Detection Network (MAEDN)

MAEDN is a vast network of land managers, field experts, citizen scientists, naturalists, gardeners and others interested in documenting invasive plant occurrences in the mid-Atlantic region for the purposes of early detection, improved management and better coordination. The region includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.

MAEDN has developed an app to help you ID and report invasives. The current focus of this app is on invasive plants but additional invasive insects and diseases have been included in this App. Releases of approved biological control agents can also be reported using EDDMapS but not currently included in this App. Thanks to support from Invasive Plant Control, Inc., National Park Service and USDA Forest Service, EDDMapS, MAEDN and the MAEDN iPhone app is available to users at no cost.
