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

Items of Interest:

Help Slow the Spread of the Emerald Ash Borer
Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection.
The Emerald ash borer was first found in Connecticut during the week of July 16, 2012. Since that first find in Prospect, EAB has been found in many other parts of the state, particularly in towns in central and western Connecticut. DEEP, the CT Agricultural Experiment Station, USDA APHIS PPQ and the US Forest Service are working together with local partners to slow the spread of the insect and to take steps to minimize its impact. This will be a long-term effort on the part of all involved.

Invasive and Potentially Invasive Plant Early Detection List
University of Connecticut. Connecticut Invasive Plant Working Group.
These plants are known to be invasive or potentially invasive in Connecticut and are on Connecticut's list of Invasive and Potentially Invasive Plants. They are known to be present only in relatively low numbers at limited locations in Connecticut. These species should be considered for control and eradication efforts in the state when resources are available. If you find these species: Report your findings immediately to the CT Invasive Plant Coordinator at reportinvasives@uconn.edu.

Invasive Aquatic Plant Workshops
Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station. Invasive Plant Program.
Workshops are offered to teach people how to identify invasive aquatic plants that occur in Connecticut lakes.
