DescriptionGreat Lakes Invaders is a card game designed to teach players how to identify invasive plant species found in Michigan and learn how to report them. The game aims to remove the intimidation factor that can be inherent in field training for those not knowledgeable with plant lore and the outdoors. Rather than technical descriptions of physical characteristics, cards highlight images of defining features of species.
