What is FLIP?

The FLIP project was funded by the FLEPPC 2011 Kathy Craddock Burks Education and Outreach Grant awarded to the Orange County Environmental Protection Division for the development of a web-based application that would allow for easy identification of common invasive plant species.

FLIP stands for FLorida Invasive Plants and is designed to be a mobile field guide that can be accessed by a computer, smart phone, tablet, or other device with internet browser capability. Developed in partnership with the University of South Florida (USF), FLIP currently contains 60 plants: 59 Category I invasive species and one Category II invasive species, as designated by the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council (FLEPPC) 2015 list of invasives.
