We need your help looking for presence/absence surveys of Oahu’s trails for Devil Weed (Chromolaena odorata). OISC simply doesn’t have the resources to survey all Oahu hiking trails for this invasive plant…so we are asking you to look for it on your next hike. Join the effort along with partners like Conservation Dogs of Hawaii and the North Shore Community Land Trust are dedicated to surveying and removing devil weed where they find it.
