Volunteers are needed to GATHER DATA ON INVASIVE SWEET CLOVER in Alaska and northern North America. Alaska’s climate warming is allowing invasive plants to take hold in Alaska and possibly luring pollinators away from native berries, says UAF ecologist Christa Mulder. Alaska’s native berries share similar habitats and pollinators with invasive plants such as sweet clover. Mulder is leading a project studying whether the presence of sweet clover can alter the production of bog blueberries and mountain cranberries. You don’t need to be a professional scientist to do research, you can make and record observations and be a part of the research team.
