New Jersey Invasive Species Strike Team Events

The Strike Team in Your Community - Outreach and Education

The Strike Team is often invited to participate in community based events such as festivals and open houses. If you are in the area, we invite you to stop by and chat with our Ambassadors at one of the upcoming events!

Membership in the Strike Team has many benefits!  One of them is the opportunity to have a Strike Team representative present a program for your group. For more information please contact Melissa Almendinger.
