February 22-26 is National Invasive Species Awareness Week! Join Audubon Connecticut and Audubon New York centers for online programs and calls-to-action as we unite with others across the country to recognize this local, state, and global threat to the habitats, birds, and wildlife that we love and depend on.

Invasive flora and fauna species negatively impact the delicate balance and functionality of our ecosystems. Together, we can halt this threat and make a difference through actions in our daily lives.

The first action is awareness—please check out (and share with others!) the learning opportunities and resources below.

Share what you learn on social media: hashtags #InvasiveSpecies and #NISAW (National Invasive Species Awareness Week).
