DELRAY BEACH, Florida & SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico—A new bilingual website by the Institute for Regional Conservation (IRC), a nonprofit dedicated to the protection, restoration, and long-term management of biodiversity, was launched on December 15, 2015 at an event at the Doña Inés Park of the Luis Muñoz Marín Foundation in San Juan, Puerto Rico. 

Training Resources

In addition to using the resources below to engage staff and volunteers, we also need you to help educate your community members about the impact of serious plant pests and diseases, the importance of early detection and the role of citizen science. Sentinel Plant Network gardens should regularly offer classes that provide this overview, introduce attendees to the First Detector Network and encourage them to become involved by creating an account, completing their training online and become a certified First Detector.
