National Invasive Species Awareness Week 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 will drive invasive species awareness in two parts during 2021:

NISAW Advocacy and Education
February 22-28, 2021

Representatives from local, state, federal, and regional organizations discuss legislation, policies, and improvements that can be made to prevent and manage invasive species.

NISAW Local Events and Awareness

May 15-22, 2021

Partners host local 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.

Make NISAW Your Own

Agencies, organizations, educators, businesses, and individuals: Nobody knows your community’s invasive species challenges and solutions like you do. We hope you make NISAW your own!
 
Below you’ll find templates for sharing invasive species outreach with the local media as well as ideas for creative ways to engage your local community on invasive species:
 


Instruction to NISAW participant: You can provide a copy of your public service announcement or press release to your local news outlets, including radio and television stations, newspapers, and local blogs. Many outlets support nonprofits by reading or running the announcement free of charge, or they might request a follow-up interview with you or another member of your organization.
