Invasive Species Education & Outreach Compendium
2013 Compendium of Resources
The Invasive Species Centre (ISC) in partnership with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources (OMNR), Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH), and the Ontario Invasive Plant Council (OIPC) conducted a web-based Invasive Species Education, Outreach and Plant Management Survey from December 2011 – January 2012. The objective of this survey was to gather information about education and outreach materials and methods for invasive plant management across the province.
The survey results were organized into two compendiums, one on invasive species education and outreach and the second on invasive plant management activities. These compendiums will help provide a better understanding of the status of work happening across the province. The information gathered will help ISC and OMNR set future priorities for invasive species communications and invasive plant management.
The education and outreach survey results were shared at an Invasive Species Education and Outreach Workshop in March 2012 hosted by the ISC and OMNR. A number of groups and individuals working to communicate invasive species information attended the workshop.
The Invasive Species Education and Outreach Compendium provides information about invasive species communications materials available in Ontario. The resources listed are organized by species and by pathway of spread to make the Compendium easy to use. Agencies, organizations and individuals involved in invasive species education and outreach programs are encouraged to add these materials to their communications plans and to coordinate with others doing similar education and outreach work.
