Site of the Month|

The GLIN May Site of the Month is Hungry Pests, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's signature outreach initiative to raise public awareness about the invasive pest threat. Its goals include: elevating the issue of invasive pests among the general public; educating the public about the threats that invasive pests pose; and increasing awareness about safe and effective solutions to combat them.
The pests targeted by the Hungry Pests initiative are federally regulated invasive species whose introduction into the United States and spread within the country is assisted by the activities of the general public. These pests have the ability to cause significant harm to U.S. agricultural and environmental resources. Through the Hungry Pests website and outreach materials, the public can learn how to Leave Hungry Pests Behind.
GLIN links hundreds of agencies and organizations serving the Great Lakes region. You may not have visited them all yet, especially with new data and information and more partners coming online every month. Because partnership is the core of GLIN, each month we highlight the wealth of information available on the web site of one active GLIN partner. These partners work closely with the GLIN Project Team to ensure that their information is integrated into the regional network; in turn, these partners point back to relevant GLIN pages from
wherever appropriate on their own web sites so that people can easily find information about a topic of interest.
