Hit Squad

Home 9 Programs 9 Hit Squad

The Invading Species Hit Squad delivers on the ground, community based invasive species education, awareness and monitoring initiatives. Working in partnership with ONDMNRF district offices, stewardship councils, conservation authorities, and non-governmental organizations, over 20 summer students are hired annually to attend local festivals and events, deliver educational programming to the public, and monitor local areas for invasive species.

Members of the Invading Species Hit Squad visit bait retailers, marinas, and garden centers to share boat launch signs and educational materials with the clients of these businesses, and are always looking for additional opportunities to engage their community in invasive species education and awareness.

To learn how you can get involved or for more information, contact the Invading Species Hotline 1-800-563-7711.
