Wait, don't let that loose! Invasive species are a serious issue in Michigan and teachers are one potential source of them. Live organisms found in curriculum kits are often not native and if let loose into the wild, they can have dramatic environmental impacts! Most companies place the responsibility on the teacher to know if an organism is invasive. This presentation will cover invasive species identification, regulations, practices to prevent classroom introductions, and free materials from Reduce Invasive Pet and Plant Escapes program.
