Education Workshops

Current Program

As invasive species issues attract more attention, it’s not unusual for agencies to receive requests from schools or teachers to provide programs dealing with invasive species. Unfortunately, many who are asked to provide these programs are not trained to lead educational programs or may be very uncomfortable at the task.

The ISAN Education Workshop is designed to address the training needs of agency personnel, teachers or other adults working with kids. The program helps people become comfortable at providing high quality invasive species education programs when requested.

The ISAN Education Workshop combine presentations about how to work with schools and students with hands-on training and how to deliver programs. Training is provided on how to interact with teachers and schools, how to deal with students of various ages and how different learning styles impact the ability to reach students.

Participants are supplied with the materials they need to conduct these same activities for groups of students. All participants leave our workshops with confidence that they can conduct a quality program.

ISAN Education trunks may be purchased separately from the workshops.  Please feel free to call with questions, or email info@stopais.org

Boot Cleaning Stations

Current Program

The Invasive Species Action Network has designed boot cleaning stations that are an easy way to encourage cleaning and get the cleaning job done.

A-Frame Boot Cleaning Station
Tub Style Boot Cleaning Station

There are two different designs of cleaning stations – a tub-style and hose style – which can be incorporated into fly shops, bait shops, campgrounds, fishing lodges and more. Our boot cleaning stations use only clean fresh water, and no chemicals!

Do you have a cleaning station at your business? Let us put you on the map, contact us for more information.

Below, you’ll find our boot cleaning station directory. Use it to find a business near you that has a boot cleaning station. These businesses support protecting our waters from an accidental introduction of aquatic invasive species.
