Awareness and Education
National Invasive Weeds Awareness Week (NIWAW) is a series of annual events and activites supported by the Invasive Weeds Awareness Coalition (IWAC), a partnership of public and private organizations concerned about the threat of invasive plants and the need to increase the understanding of invasive plant management issues in the United States.
FICMNEW agencies work cooperatively with IWAC and many other public and private organizations to help support NIWAW in the national capital area (Washington, DC). In addition, FICMNEW agencies collaborate with local organizations and private landowners to conduct NIWAW events at the state and county level.
