Working together to protect Oregon


Keep these out of Oregon

Oregon is being invaded by plants, animals, fungi and other species.

Invasive species

  • include plants, animals and microbes
  • outcompete native plants and animals
  • devastate industries
  • threaten the safety of our drinking water
  • harm native cultures that rely on salmon and other natural resources
  • limit recreational opportunities
  • place at risk the ability of future generations to experience the same quality of natural resources this state has to offer. 

Fortunately, a community of dedicated people -- from scientists to private citizens, to government officials and non-profit organizations -- are working hard to protect the state from invasive species. The Oregon Invasive Species Council helps to coordinate efforts that keep invasive species out of the state, and to eliminate, reduce, or mitigate the impacts of invaders that have already established in the state. 


We urge you to join us in ensuring a vibrant, healthy future for Oregon. Simple actions can make a big difference and help ensure that Oregon's natural resources are preserved for future generations.
