National Invasive Species Awareness Week
February 24 - February 28
National Invasive Species Awareness Week is a nationwide event occurring in the spring to raise awareness of the threat of invasive species are and what people can do to prevent their spread. Representatives from local, state, and regional organizations gather in Washington, D.C. in late February to discuss policies and changes that can be made to prevent and manage invasive species. A series of educational and advocacy events are planned online and in local communities. In the late spring, local partners hold public events to remove invasives and educate the public.
