Provides links to state-specific resources with an interest in the prevention, control, or eradication of invasive species.

Items of Interest:

Director's Orders List (PDF | 35 KB)
Arizona Game and Fish Department.
In 2009, the Arizona Legislature passed the Aquatic Invasive Species Interdiction Act, which authorized the regulatory measures known as "Director's Orders". The orders contain a list of aquatic invasive species for Arizona, a list of waters where aquatic invasive species are present, and mandatory conditions for the movement of watercraft. A map of affected waters (PDF | 1.1 MB) is also available.

Regulatory Pest Alerts
Arizona Plant Diagnostic Network.
This list of the most serious biotic pests and pathogens is maintained by the State (Arizona Department of Agriculture) and Federal (USDA) regulatory agents. Their goal is to prevent the introduction and/or spread of these pests/pathogens in our state. The University of Arizona diagnosticians and Extension agents and State/Federal regulatory agents rely on the community to report any suspicious pests or pathogens found on the regulatory alerts.

Lake Powell Mussel Update
DOI. NPS. Glen Canyon National Recreation Area.
Quagga mussel larvae, or veligers, were first confirmed in Lake Powell in late 2012 after routine water monitoring tests discovered mussel DNA in water samples taken from the vicinity of Antelope Point and the Glen Canyon Dam. Adult mussels were first reported in March 2013 when a local marine services business discovered 4 adult mussels on a boat that had been pulled for service. Continued mussel education and prevention activities will minimize the chances that mussels will colonize other areas of the lake.

Monthly Buffelgrass Pull
DOI. NPS. Saguaro National Park.
Help preserve the Sonoran Desert by removing buffelgrass, a highly invasive grass that threatens native plants and wildlife populations. Volunteers are needed to assist with buffelgrass pulls, held the second Saturday of each month, from Sept-May.

iMapInvasives: Sharing Information for Strategic Management
Nature Conservancy. iMapInvasives.
iMapInvasives is an invasive species reporting and data management tool that is on-line and map-based. The primary focus for iMapInvasives is to track invasive species locations and management efforts. iMapInvasives tools can be used by citizen scientists, land owners, natural resources managers, and others who are working to prevent, control, or manage invasive species. The iMapInvasives network is currently comprised of ten U.S. states and one Canadian province (Arizona, Florida, Maine, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Saskatchewan, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia).
