California Invasive Species Action Week
California Invasive Species Action Week!
The 10th annual California Invasive Species Action Week (CISAW) will kick off Saturday
June 3rd and runs to Sunday June 11th.
encourage public participation in the ongoing fight against invasive species. These
invaders are non-native plants, animals, or pathogens that can negatively impact our
waters, native ecosystems, agriculture, health, and economy. Every day this week we
will be spotlighting a different invasive species and its impacts.
You can participate during Action Week and all year long by doing the following:
1. Check out UC IPM’s previous blog posts on invasive species.
2. Burn firewood where you buy it. Do not move firewood to different counties.
Visit the California Firewood Task Force website for more information.
3. Find out if there's a pest quarantine in your area and what you can do to
minimize spread from the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
4. Don’t plant invasive species and when possible, try to plant California natives.
Visit the PlantRight website for more information on plant selection.
5. Report invasive species to your local County Agricultural Commissioner.
Contact information for your location can be found at the California Department
of Agriculture County/State Liaison page.
6. View the full schedule of events for Action Week at the California Invasive
Species Action Week website.
Help us observe Invasive Species Action Week and the fight against invasive species!

Are you familiar with Hypertufa? Attend this special class demonstration to learn how to make your own at home - it's fun and easy! Hypertufa pots have a coarse stone appearance and with their porous texture they make great containers for plants, especially succulents. Very unique shapes can be made, too. Versatile and lightweight, these pots can be almost any size you want. Samples will be on display to view the finished products. Each attendee will be entered into our drawing – two lucky winners will go home with a specially created Hypertufa container!
