The goal of NISAW is to raise awareness of the problems that invasive species cause to human health, ecosystems, and our economy; and provide resources and opportunities for individuals, organizations, and government leaders to be a part of the solution.
These FREE, customizable resources can be used to raise awareness by any agency, organization, educator, business, or individual. Come back to this page for additional outreach resources coming soon.
