Many ecological, economic, and recreational impacts have been observed in North America due to the introduction of invading species. The OFAH/OMNRF Invading Species Awareness Program delivers a number of initiatives that promote public engagement in invasive species awareness and prevention across the province. The active participation of boaters, anglers, property owners, gardeners, recreationalists, and all Ontarians is vital to prevent the spread of invasive species. Our efforts today will benefit the ecosystems of tomorrow, as well as contribute to our continued enjoyment of our natural resources. Volunteer involvement in raising invasive species awareness and prevention is appreciated and fundamental to the success of the Invading Species Awareness Program.
