ISN isn't able to host in-person events at this time, but invasive species aren't stopping just because there's a pandemic. Consider tackling invasive species in your backyard or local natural area (with permission).
Then share your work with us to celebrate!
Hand-Pull or Dig:
Hand-Pull or Cut-Stump:

And always be on the lookout for Early Detection Species!
Species marked with an asterisk (*) are Top 12 species for ISN.

We're creating more resources to help you eliminate guesswork wherever we can.

Work Together with ISN
Trying to adjust our programs and outputs with a drastic reduction in staff and funding and communication options has been a real learning process for us at ISN. So far, we've learned that even with severely reduced staff, we can get 75% of our knotweed treatment goals, treat all of the black swallow-wort populations we have permission for, host online webinars and post them for later viewing, and keep on top of the most up-to-date invasive species information.

We've learned you are garlic mustard pulling MACHINES, and that you've come to rely on us to answer questions about invasive species. We can't thank you enough for all your work on-the-ground, your active stewardship in figuring out what species you have at home, and your dedication to controlling invasive species following best management practices. We want to be there for you every step of the way, so we're continuing to put together resources to help. There's a start in the box to the right!

Unfortunately, our drastic funding change doesn't seem to have an end in sight. We know we are among the lucky--we still have staff, and are able to do so much of our work while observing social distancing. However, if you are able to contribute to ISN's work financially , we'd really appreciate it. Your dollars go toward giving a "scholarship" to someone on fixed income for knotweed control, creating engaging presentations for interested groups, and making new resources to put the power of invasive species management in the hands of the people. Thank you!
Garden professionals and community partners all over ISN's service area are committing not to use or sell high-priority invasive species! While you're weeding your garden and planning your next project, think local as you plan your shopping! Then, remember the businesses that have made the decision to Go Beyond Beauty.
