Sarah Zack and Danielle Hilbrich organized an aquatic invasive species outreach booth October 27-28 at the Illinois Science Teachers Association Conference in Tinley Park, Illinois. The theme was  “Never Release Classroom Plants and Animals,” and the information was aimed at explaining how even common classroom plants or animals can endanger the environment if not properly cared for and disposed of. They reached approximately 260 science teachers, with many engaging in conversations about how to prevent classroom specimens from becoming harmful invasive species.
Sarah and Danielle display some of the informational materials they provided for the conference.
