February 25 thru March 2 is National Invasive Species Awareness Week! It’s also Indiana’s Invasive Species week. Follow along on Indiana DNR’s Facebook page this week as we talk about some of the effects of invasive species in Indiana.

During this week each year, organizations attempt to share information about the impacts, how to prevent the introduction of, and how to control invasive species. While DEPP often uses this week to focus on invasive plants, it’s important to remember there are many invasive insects, diseases, and animals that have been introduced to the United States.

Need some suggestions for celebrating Invasive Species Week?

Don’t hesitate to contact your local inspector or send an email to DEPP@dnr.IN.gov if you have  specific questions.
