Hi STEM educators! Just in case you hadn’t heard – National Invasive Species Awareness Week is upon us! What a great time to talk with kids about the importance of plants, the impact that serious pests and diseases have on forest health, and what they can do to stop the spread of invasive species!
Looking for fun resources on the subject? The Plant Heroes have you covered!
Check out our activity books, comics and field guides on thirteen different pests from around the country. These are all available as interactive elements and as downloadable PDFs on our mobile-optimized website. There you can also find interactive maps that students can use to explore the subject and drill down for more information, fun games to test their knowledge and way to get involved through citizen science!
