CE:How to PlayCleanGo to Stop Invasive Species
Sunday, February 27, 2022 – 2:00 – 3:00 pm | Schramm Sunday Speaker Series - How to PlayCleanGo to Stop Invasive Species
Speaker: Allison Zach, Nebraska Invasive Species Program Coordinator
If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, three words you should keep in mind are play, clean, and go. The PlayCleanGo campaign is a national effort to raise awareness of invasive species prevention. Invasive species are plants, animals, and other organisms that cause harm when they are introduced to an area where they are not native. In honor of National Invasive Species Awareness Week, Allison Zach, Program Coordinator for the Nebraska Invasive Species Program, will join us to share about invasive species that pose a threat to Nebraska’s natural resources. She will help us learn how to identify species that you may have heard about in recent years, including Zebra Mussels and Silver Carp, help us understand why these species pose such a problem, and share how to PlayCleanGo to ensure that we slow the spread of invasive species.
