Invasive Species Awareness Week
“Invasive Species Awareness Week (ISAW) is an annual educational campaign coordinated by the Invasive Species Council, the Invasive Species Advisory Committee, the eight PRISMs (Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management), and their partner organizations.” This is a week-long statewide event; such as invasive species removal projects, presentations, film screenings, guided hikes and more.
Communities play a large role when it comes to invasive species education, management, and control. Many shrubs and trees have been ranked in New York State as invasive species and are now prohibited and regulated species. During ISAW July 9th-July 15th, 2017 we would like to invite communities in the Capital Mohawk PRISM to emphasis native species or alternatives to some of the prohibited and regulated invasive species that customers are accustomed to buying such as the Burning Bush, Japanese Barberry, Norway and Crimson King Maples, Honeysuckle and more. Suggestions for ISAW week might be:
· Share or make a Facebook post about impacts of invasive species or the benefits of native species
· Post information on your website
· Hand out flyers about invasive species or native species
· Hold an invasive species collection day
· Have a list of events during ISAW week up on social media, for example: The water chestnut pull, at a municipal launch site
· Hold your own class about invasive species or native species
· …or anything else that helps us spread the word!
For more information, regarding these regulations, please refer to New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Part 575 and Part 576 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECC).

It is illegal to put Snow in the Road
- Please note Article 1219 of New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law makes it illegal to plow, shovel or blow snow into a street or highway. Note you are also liable if you hire a person to remove snow from your driveway or yard and they cause it to be in the Roadway. This includes pushing snow across the road and leaving only small amounts in the Road. This causes a hazard for vehicle traffic. You may be cited under this law. Article 1220 is similar to Article 1219 of New York State Vehicle and Traffic Law making it prohibits throwing, dumping or depositing any refuse, trash or littler on any street, road or highway, or even along the right-of-way or an adjacent private lands.
