Invasive Species Week In NY

This is the sixth annual Invasive Species Awareness Week which runs through July 13th. Initiated in 2014, ISAW is an educational campaign featuring statewide events that encourage New Yorkers to help protect the state’s resources from the negative impacts of invasive species. Planning is already underway, and this year’s theme is “Early Detection: Explore, Observe, Report.” The “Early Detection” theme is meant to shine a spotlight on the importance of detecting infestations of invasive species early, which increases the success of response efforts.
