Help Protect Wildlife Habitat by Reducing the Spread of Exotic Invasive Species

Exotic invasive plant species are highly aggressive species that are not native to Illinois. These plants can harm habitat of both game and non-game species. Seeds from invasive species can be spread on footwear, ATVs, and equipment.

Help preserve the hunting opportunities and natural heritage of this region by cleaning and removing seeds, dirt, and plant material from your boots, clothes, and equipment.
