NY Invasive Species Awareness Week Lineup! SEVENTY events across the Finger Lakes!

Download the Flier ISAW_’17 Today!

Invasive species are on the move; everyone can help to stop their spread

Activities Set for New York’s FOURTH Invasive Species Awareness Week, July 9-15th

GENEVA, NY – This year marks the fourth Invasive Species Awareness Week in New York State. Last year over 100 invasive species activities occurred throughout the state and this year the Finger Lakes region is poised and ready with a lineup of even more great activities and events to mark the occasion. Some of the greatest harm to our and agricultural systems is caused by invasive plants and animals—organisms that have been accidentally or intentionally introduced to new areas and spread uncontrollably. Invasive Species Awareness Week promotes opportunities for citizens to learn about the most threatening species and ways to prevent and manage their spread. Everyone is encouraged to participate in Awareness Week activities to learn about important steps to take to protect their favorite places. Most invasive species reproduce in high numbers, lack predators, and are highly adapted to their new environment. Invasive plants and animals put New York’s agricultural lands, natural resources, and people at risk. The emerald ash borers and Asian long-horned beetles kill our important trees; noxious plants, such as giant hogweed, and disease organisms, such as West Nile virus, affect human health; and Japanese stilt grass, swallow-wort vine, phragmites and Hydrilla are invasive plants capable of changing New York’s forests, meadows, wetlands and lakes.

Many organizations are working together throughout the state to slow the spread of invasive species. “Invasive Species Reality Check, Where Are We & Where Do We Need to Go” is the state’s invasive species slogan. Citizens can help by: 1) taking measures to prevent the transport of unwanted “hitchhiking” plants and animals, 2) learning about which invasive species are of local concern (fingerlakesinvasives.org), 3) reporting sightings to http //www.nyimapinvasives.org/report-an-invasive.

The line-up of events in the Finger Lakes region includes 70 activities such as an invasive species trail walk, invasive species removal and water chestnut pulls. The full schedule of events is online at https://stoptheinvasionny.com/ and fingerlakesinvasives.org. Most events are free, but pre-registration may be requested.

New York Invasive Species Awareness Week is coordinated by the New York Invasive Species Advisory Committee, New York Invasive Species Council and NY’s Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management. The Finger Lakes PRISM, hosted by the Finger Lakes Institute at Hobart and William Smith Colleges is one of eight Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM) in the state sponsoring Awareness Week activities.
