Catalog of Aquatic Invasive Species Education and Outreach Materials

A display of brochures.
A display of brochures. Portland State University.

This searchable inventory of AIS outreach materials maintained at Portland State University is available to all users and has a dynamic web interface that allows registered users to input their own education and outreach materials as well as having a peer review and ratings system for material evaluation to help maintain a high standard for submissions. New users may wish to browse through the system before using the search features to get a better idea of the types of materials available. Organizations that have developed outreach tools that are available for distribution are encouraged to register and use the dynamic interface to upload a record of their own materials.

In addition to the inventory of materials we are in the process of developing an image gallery where AIS images available for non-commercial use can be downloaded for use in the development of new materials (this will reduce image fatigue - i.e. seeing the same photo over and over again in every brochure).

An inventory such as this is necessary to avoid duplication of effort, to enhance exchange of readily available information, and to help educators, managers and outreach personnel evaluate gaps in existing outreach efforts.

Invasive Species Education and Outreach

Remember a time when you didn't know what an invasive species was?  Or why it was bad?  There are still lots of folks out there who don't!  Educating our children and providing outreach materials such as brochures, posters and flyers is vital to trying to stem the tide of newcommers in our natural environments.  Use the resources found in this area to help educate everyone about invasive species!
