Invasive Species Awareness Week Is Coming Up in June
The DEC has announced the eighth annual Invasive Species Awareness Week is slated for June 6 to 12. This is a statewide educational campaign comprising various events aimed at educating the public about invasive species: how they got here, how to recognize them, what their negative impacts are, and how we can take action to protect our local resources from their introduction and spread.
This year, it looks like there will be both virtual and in-person ISAW events. Looking at the calendar on the website, it looks like some events are pending details and more events may be added.
