The Invader Detectives program provides a platform for citizen scientists to assist in discovering, documenting, and tracking non-native invasive species that have yet to become well-established in a particular area. These observations assist land managers with identifying emerging threats to habitats, and facilitates early detection and rapid response to these threats.

He is also on the Board of the Mid-Atlantic Invasive Plant Council, where he previously served as President.
