Mid Atlantic Early Detection Network

What is the Mid-Atlantic Early Detection Network (MAEDN)?

MAEDN is a vast network of land managers, field experts, citizen scientists, naturalists, gardeners and others interested in documenting invasive plant occurrences in the mid-Atlantic region for the purposes of early detection, improved management and better coordination. The region includes Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia.


The current focus is on invasive plants but additional invasive taxa may be added in the future. Releases of approved biological control agents can also be reported using EDDMapS. Thanks to support from the National Park Service and USDA Forest Service, EDDMapS is available to users at no cost.
