Invasive species are one of the greatest threats to Monroe County's forests and wetlands. MC-IRIS works with landowners, educators, researchers, and agencies all over the county to protect our diverse natural areas from Invasive species. Join us at our meetings, work days, or educational events to be part of the solution! Check our calendar for upcoming events.
Monroe County's Identify and Reduce Invasive Species is a coalition of Monroe County citizens aimed at reducing the environmental and economic impact of invasive species in our county through education and action.
