Welcome to Invasive Species Awareness Month 2012!

Its May in Illinois and that means we are starting another Awareness Month.  Governor Quinn signed a proclamation, denoting May as Invasive Species Awareness Month.  We've already scheduled nearly 70 events across Illinois to raise awareness and educate the public on invasive species issues and more are being added everyday!.  Check out our calendar of events at

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
  • Garden Club presentations in Carbondale
  • Garlic Mustard challenge underway across the state
We're encouraging everyone to visit our facebook page at and upload your favorite photos of educational events, workdays, or even pics of the invasive species you've found in the state.
