NatureWatch Wisely

  • Invasive species can be spread by being inadvertently bought and sold by uninformed buyers, moved on plants, produce, or agricultural materials as they are shipped from source to market; being transported on recreation equipment, gear, and luggage; and even riding across oceans on water, wind, or debris.
  • The National Invasive Species Information Center is your gateway to identify, control, educational materials, funding and regulations for non-native, potentially harmful species.
  • Check out Hungry Pests for state-by-state guides of the most critical invasive threats, resources to help combat invasive species, and a new middle school curriculum about invasive pests.
  • Learn techniques to stop Aquatic Hitchhiker Invasive Species from impacting our nation’s waters and fish.
