New York State celebrates its Invasive Species Awareness Week Annually

Invasive species affect all New Yorkers - including hikers, highway personnel, birders, boaters, farmers and foresters.

The mission of the New York Invasive Species Awareness Week (ISAW) is to promote knowledge and understanding of invasive species and the harm they can cause by engaging citizens in a wide range of activities across the state, and empowering them to take action to stop the invasion!

There will be numerous invasive species-related public events held during Invasive Species Awareness Week, Click here to learn more about this year’s ISAW!


Please help the Invasive Species Awareness Week planning committee improve ISAW in future years by completing an online feedback survey. This data will be used to prepare the annual report, which will be posted on this webpage in the fall.
