The Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign, or IWAC, was created in 2001 by the efforts of the Idaho Weed Coordinating Committee.  Its mission is to create public awareness and education to help the people of Idaho understand the economic and environmental impacts of invasive weeds and support the implementation of all aspects of integrated weed management.  Our main goal is to encourage Idahoans to help develop and participate in invasive weed eradication and management programs, and to assist in preventing the spread of invasive weeds.

By focusing on a central theme of Idaho's Most Wanted "Noxious Weeds,"  IWAC has created an ongoing Community Outreach Program, utilizing Television, Radio and Newspaper ads.  IWAC has also developed an "Invasive Weeds Toolkit"  educational program which is being distributed to Elementary and Middle Schools in Idaho.

IWAC also created this web site to distribute information to the public. It is now being updated regularly to provide attractive and educational interactive multimedia content as well as networking and discussion opportunities.  A highlight of this website is our "Virtual Field Guide" where you can visit 360 degree panorama images, video and multimedia, and a "Reference Library" providing information about each of the 66 Noxious Weeds, including tips for identifying and eradication.

Please enjoy your visit, and help us pull together against invasive weeds.

"When dealing with newly invasive species, our failures are obvious, and our successes are invisible." –Dr. Rich Old
