Governor Parnell declared Jun 23-29, 2013 Alaska Invasive Weeds Awareness Week. Alaska is in a unique position to avoid the enormous costs of widespread invasive plants, now impacting all 48 contiguous states and Hawaii. In recognition of this opportunity, State, federal, local, private, and non-profit organizations, as well as the public, are working together to increase public awareness, promote invasive weed prevention and management, and help keep our communities and environment free of invasive weeds. See Invasive Plants for more information from the Alaska Committee for Noxious and Invasive Plants Management.
