Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month

Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month: The goal of May 2012 Illinois Invasive Species Awareness Month (ISAM) is to provide resources and opportunities to help stop the spread of invasive species in Illlinois - each and every person can make a difference, including you!
Check out the blog posted by Chris Evans at River to River CWMA. they posted the first edition of  "The Hunt for Invasive Species Slogans" Chris says, "I’ve always been intrigued with creativity that is put to good use. As I’m sure you know, a catchy or funny slogan or saying can really make an advertisement memorable (for example, you can't hear 'Where’s the Beef?' without thinking of Wendy's). From working with invasive species over the last ten years, I've come to the conclusion that there are a lot of creative, funny, and/or odd things out there when it comes to invasive species educational material.
I’m starting a series of posts to highlight some of the more memorable and fun slogans that you can find on publications, bumper stickers, and t-shirts.
If you know of some slogans that haven’t been posted here, please send them to
These slogans seem to fit into three broad categories: Play-off, Alliteration, and Rhyming. Here in this first post, I am going to concentrate on The Play-off."
