Do Some Research: You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home. Get on the
Internet and find out what’s invasive in your area, region or state. Identify which species might
be growing in your backyard or neighborhood. Learn to recognize common invaders and keep an
eye out for signs of new ones. Check trees, gardens, vacant lots, roadsides, yards, agricultural
areas, wetlands, ponds, and lakes. Early detection is crucial to stopping the spread of invasive
species! Visit www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov/unitedstates to get started.
