National Invasive Species Awareness Week February 22-28, 2015

At the close of the 2014 Salmon Blitz season, citizen scientists have collected almost 50 km of new data that will be nominated to the State of Alaska's Anadromous Waters Catalog.

Invasive  Species Work

Invasive species, alien invaders, exotic pests. Whatever you like to call these plants and animals that arrive unwelcome from other places, they're here! Invasive species can alter habitat, decrease diversity, and altogether change the ecological structure that wildlife and people have come to depend on.

CRWP's invasive plant program manages top priority species such as reed canarygrass, white sweetclover, bird vetch, orange hawkweed, bohemian knotweed, and elodea. With the help of our Cooperative Weed Management Area partners in Cordova and the Copper Basin, our summer field work and ongoing education continue to be a success!


Learn about our invasive plant management program in the Copper River Watershed.

Check out the National Invasive Species Awareness Week website to learn about invasive plants throughout the United States.
