How to Get Involved with Invasive Species Prevention

You can help prevent invasive species from spreading and keep new invasions from starting.

Educate yourself, your family, and your neighbors.

Early detection is critical to stopping the spread of invasive species. Learn to recognize the common invaders in your area (start with our Watch Out! Weed ID cards) and keep an eye out for signs of new ones. You can start by reviewing the following two references. Then check the areas around your home, work, and recreation sites to locate any potential infestations.

When on outings, share your knowledge with your family. Teach them how to identify invasive species and how to avoid spreading them.

Let your neighborhood organization or your local invasive species experts know about local infestations and discuss management options.

Let your local nursery grower know about your concerns about invasive species. Inquire about the source of plants you buy.
