Invasive Species Awareness Week (ISAW), July 8-14, is an annual educational campaign initiated by the Invasive Species Council and Advisory Committee in 2014. The mission of the New York Invasive Species Awareness Week (ISAW) is to promote knowledge and understanding of invasive species and the harm they can cause by engaging citizens in a wide range of activities across the state and empowering them to take action to help stop the spread. 

Invasive species are species that are not native to a particular ecosystem and have the ability to cause significant harm to our environment, economy or human health. They affect us all and threaten our treasured waters, lands, food production, and even human health. New York’s lands, waters, and agricultural resources are worth protecting. Invasive species are costly to our communities and society. Preventing the introduction and spread of invasive species is far more cost-effective than trying to remove them once they have become established.
