Technically we’re halfway through National Invasive Species Awareness Week, but it’s good to get a reminder partway through. Everyone gets super excited about things when they start, and then the excitement tapers off as time goes by. So consider this a mid-week boost! Also, don’t forget about the multi-page comic on invasive species I did last year, which you can read here. And now: relevant links!
