Authors: Victoria Elmore
The Wildlands Conservancy (TWC) is a California nonprofit organization with a mission 'to preserve the beauty and biodiversity of the earth and provide programs so that children may know the wonder and joy of nature.' Working with students at the University of Redlands and staff from a local charter school, TWC has begun hosting service learning field trips in which middle and high school students use ArcGIS Collector to record data about invasive plant species at Oak Glen Preserve.
