Prevention is the most critical stage of keeping Alaska wild and free of . We practice prevention through a variety of outreach tools and opportunities such as this series of Invasive Species Toolkits. These toolkits are a collection of invasive species outreach materials and suggested lesson plans geared towards teachers or visitor centers. Most toolkits contain demo items such as toy Elodeas (Alaska’s first aquatic invasive plant), as well as invasive species games like scramble squares, memory matching, and Jenga. We are routinely revising these toolkits to improve and better tailor them to the individual communities. Toolkits are available in the following locations: Izembek NWR, Arctic Interagency Visitor Center, and the Fairbanks Fish and Wildlife Conservation Office.
