The goal of May 2012 Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month (ISAM) is to provide resources and opportunities to help stop the spread of invasive species in Illlinois - each and every person can make a difference, including you!
It's May in Illinois and that means we are starting another Awareness Month. Governor Quinn signed a proclamation, denoting May as Invasive Species Awareness Month. There are already nearly 70 events scheduled across Illinois to raise awareness and educate the public on invasive species issues and more are being added everyday!. Check out this calendar of events:
Here is a short preview of the events underway this first week:
- Workdays at Morton Arboretum, Fermilab, Allerton, and Lake Forest
- Awards Ceremony in Springfield for our 2011 ISAM honorees
