4th Annual Adirondack Invasive Species Awareness Week is July 5 -11

The 4th Annual Adirondack Invasive Species Awareness Week is July 5 -11.  Awareness Week provides an opportunity to raise attention to invasive species and ways to stop their spread.  Groups across the region host activities locally which help to broaden the reach of our collective message. 

We're requesting that activities be submitted by June 24th so that we can alert media in advance.  Activities will be posted online at http://adkinvasives.com/InvasiveSpeciesAwarenessWeek.html.  

Need ideas?  Consider…

Plant pulls

Earthworm watches

Plant paddles

Forest pest trapping

Tips and tricks for I'd

Milfoil boat tours

Native plant landscaping

Free boat washing

River walks

Didymo dunk station

And more… 

We hope you will join in the effort during Awareness Week to protect the Adirondack region from invasive species. We look forward to hearing from you. 

Thank you!
