A grant-funded program that coordinates the Nebraska Invasive Species Council (NISC) to:

Prevent the introduction of invasive species in Nebraska
Promote early detection and rapid response to control new infestations
Reduce the impact of invasive species on Nebraska’s natural resources

The program is run by a full-time program coordinator who conducts identification workshops, gives presentations, and attends events to promote invasive species prevention. The coordinator conducts research to protect Nebraska's natural resources including boater surveys since 2010, including educating the public on how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Also disseminates invasive species teaching tools to educators throughout the state for K-12 grade teachers.
