1st Annual National Invasive Species Awareness Week
Updated: Jan 29, 2021
May 16-24th, 2020
Resources Coming Soon! #NISAW #InvasiveSpecies
After surveying organizations across the country in 2019, CCIS determined that a one-week National Invasive Species Awareness campaign held each spring, is the preferred timing among partners. Consequently, May 16-24, 2020 was selected for the National Invasive Species Awareness Week, in alignment with the second National Invasive Species Awareness Week hosted by our US partners. To launch our first year of this awareness campaign, we are focused on working with partners across Canada to share messaging and resources through social media and online tools. Therefore, CCIS will be sharing a toolkit in the coming days to help our partners promote this week in their province or territory, to raise awareness and promote action against invasive species together! The toolkit will include links to key resources, information on webinars we are hosting that week, social media templates and graphics and much more. We are also ensuring we link the week to other, important international themes such as the International Day of Biodiversity and the UN's International Year of Plant Health.
Stay tuned for more!
