Clean Go: Stop Invasive Species in Your Tracks
Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
Interagency partners in Minnesota have launched PlayCleanGo, an education and
outreach campaign for outdoor recreationalists. The goal is to encourage outdoor
recreation while protecting valuable natural resources. The objective is to
slow or stop the spread of terrestrial invasive species (those that occur on
land) through changes in public behavior.
