Become involved, become educated Local campaigns associated with education, research, and monitoring invasive species can increase knowledge and participation in spread prevention. Spread the word! Use local firewood Target partnerships to increase education and awareness of the transport of firewood and critters outside counties. Be a steward of YOUR Lake Increased watercraft steward programs and trainings can reach thousands of recreationists and people who fish during the season. Cleaning equipment can prevent transport of invasive species from one location to another. Plant native species, report invaders When landscaping or gardening, choose plants that are native to our region to ease care requirements and increase biological diversity. Organize volunteer projects Volunteers are your greatest asset! Form a volunteer program.
