"Many hands make light work!"
Volunteers contribute widely to NJISST's mission -- from hiking trails in search of invasive species like Siebold's viburnum to launching a kayak to pull water chestnut from an otherwise pristine lake. Each activity helps protect New Jersey's natural areas, public and private, from emerging invasive species.
The New Jersey Invasive Species Strike Team works with volunteers throughout NJ. Volunteers can work in multiple capacities and will be connected to an organization working in their region. No experience is needed, training is provided.
Together, we can Nip Invasive Species in the Bud!
