The Washington Township Environmental Commission has identified a grant and will be applying for funds to be used to raise awareness of invasive plant species in Washington Township.  An invasive species is one that is a non-native organizm that is causing harm to the environment, human health or the economy.  They are wshown to interrupt the natural functions of an ecosystem by  impacting native  plants and animals.   The NJ Invasive Species Strike Team has created a website to learn more. http://www.njisst.org/NRCSGrant.htm

If you have a smartphone, the power to protect is in your hands!!  You can use your phone to help stop the spread of invasive plants.  Download the NJ Invasive Species Strike Team APP to help identify and share invasive species that you find.
