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 consists of a full time program coordinator. The program conducts public outreach by conducting identification workshops, giving presentations and attending expos and events to promote invasive species prevention. The program conducts research to protect Nebraska's natural resources and has conducted boater surveys since 2010 educating the public on how to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species.
