The North American Invasive Species Management Association connects, supports and empowers professionals challenged by invasive species, including land resource managers, water resource managers, government agency leaders, and nonprofit organizations. Since 1993 NAISMA has consistently met its mandate to provide professional development and networking opportunities, and to set and enforce industry standards toward the most effective management of invasive species.

PlayCleanGo is a patented education and awareness campaign owned by NAISMA.
The PlayCleanGo campaign’s goal is to protect valuable natural resources while encouraging folks to enjoy the great outdoors. Using community-based social marketing to build brand recognition, our objective is to slow (and where possible to stop) the spread of invasive species by changing public and worker behaviors at risk of spreading harmful pests living on land or in water. In the past two years, PlayCleanGo has reached more than 3 million people, placed boot brush stations and trail signs at more 3,000 new locations, supported hundreds of local organizations with prevention tools and messaging, and created Spanish-translated trail signs and outreach materials. Your donation helps us reach millions more.
National Invasive Species Awareness Week
NISAW is a nationwide event to raise awareness about invasive species, the threat that they pose, and what can be done to prevent their spread. Representatives from local, state, and regional organizations discuss legislation, policies, and improvements that can be made to prevent and manage invasive species. A series of virtual webinars are planned online during NISAW from February 22-26, 2021 and sponsorship opportunities are available. In May, local partners hold public events to remove invasives and educate elected officials, decision makers, and the public on how they can help to stop the spread of invasive species and protect communities.
NISAW is managed by the North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAISMA).
