National Invasive Species Awareness Week (NISAW) 2023 was a grand success! From a full week of webinars to social media outreach, and over a thousand letters sent to Congress, we made a huge impact advocating for invasive species prevention and management. We couldn’t have done it without your support!

“This year’s NISAW bridged across US borders as we celebrated the week with partners from Canada and Mexico. While NISAW is just a week-long, there are ways for you to support invasive species management all year long. NAISMA has the tools and resources you need to connect. We encourage you to find ways to get involved in your own communities and ask that you step up and become an advocate for invasive species management in North America today!”

-Christie Trifone Millhouse, NAISMA Executive Director
