Aquatic Nuisance Species

Whether they are plants or animals, aquatic nuisance species (ANS) can create lots of problems when they are introduced into a habitat they are not originally from. As such, it is important to learn how to recognize them, understand what impacts they may have on our native species and habitats, learn why we shouldn’t release them into areas outside of their native range, and know how we can prevent their introduction.

The following workbooks were designed to raise awareness about aquatic nuisance species. Click on the image below to view the workbook as an interactive flipbook. Scroll down a little further to access a link to download a pdf of the workbook. An interactive pdf for both workbooks is also available to download.
