The purpose of this project is to help Washington Tribes raise awareness about invasive species by providing educational materials and service. Together we can reduce the impacts of invasive species on cultural resources in Washington.
The ‘Increasing Native Vigilance, Awareness and Surveillance of Invasions via Education (INVASIVE) Project’ was funded by the FY2022 USDA APHIS Plant Protection Act Section 7721. A total of $77,763 was awarded for Agreement Number 5.0595; see the APHIS FY22 Spending Plan (PDF). This agreement includes $11,800 for the production of educational materials and $11,926 for travel to offer workshops and site visits. Contact us to order educational materials while funding lasts.

Current funding only supports production of outreach materials for Tribal communities with traditional homelands within Washington State. However, communities outside of Washington are still encouraged to contact Joey because additional funding can be requested when needs are demonstrated.
This project is a continuation of projects previously led by Dan Fagerlie, WSU CAHNRS Tribal Liaison, and only possible because of his mentorship and support. Dan can still be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
