National Invasive Species Awareness Week

North American Invasive Species Awareness Week (NISAW) 2024 is an international event to raise awareness about invasive species, the threat that they pose, and what can be done to prevent their spread. NISAW is powered by The North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAISMA), which supports local, state, and regional organizations to make NISAW their own.
