In their efforts to detect new outbreaks, invasive species experts in Oregon face the daunting challenge of tracking hundreds of potential new invaders across millions of acres of farms, forests, and waterways. They can't do it alone. They need the help of all Oregonians to be their eyes in the field. To report invaders using the Oregon Invasive Species Online Hotline and search past reports, go here. To call in a sighting, call our Invasive Species Hotline: 1-866-INVADER (1-866-468-2337).
