The Capital Region PRISM (Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management) would like to invite you to join and participate in the annual New York State Invasive Species Awareness Week (ISAW) from Monday, June 6th to Sunday, June 12th 2022. ISAW is an annual educational campaign coordinated by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, New York State Invasive Species Council and Invasive Species Advisory Committee, the eight PRISMS of New York and their partners. 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. The awareness campaign is an excellent opportunity for the public to learn about invasive species and how they can get involved to help protect our forests, lakes, rivers, wetlands, and other natural areas from the negative impacts of invasive pests. Please join us and host an event to help protect our environment! Initiated in 2014, the week-long campaign features numerous statewide events focused on invasive species, ranging from floating classrooms, removal and restoration efforts, live presentations, informational webinars, citizen science trainings, film screenings, tabling events, and more.

Please consider and host an event which can be listed through the form linked below and advertised on the official NYISAW event page as well as the CR-PRISM’s social media outlets.
