What is PlayCleanGo?
This is the initiative to stop invasive species in their tracks. You can help participate by REMOVING plants, animals, & mud from boots, gear, pets & vehicles, CLEANING your gear before entering & leaving a recreation site, STAYING on designated roads & trails, and USING CERTIFIED or local firewood & hay.
Partially funded by the USDA Forest Service, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources launched the outreach campaign PlayCleanGo: Stop Invasives Species in your Tracks in 2012. The campaign has since expanded to include partner organizations across North America. The campaign has expanded since in large part due to the work of the North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAIMA) who adopted PlayCleanGo in 2015. The campaign goal is to protect valuable natural resources and encourage folks to enjoy the outdoors. Community based social marketing has helped build brand recognition and the objective is to slow (and where possible stop) the spread of invasive species by changing public and worker behaviors at risk of spreading harmful pests living on land or in water. PlayCleanGo promotes awareness, understanding, and cooperation by providing a clear call to action to be informed, attentive, and accountable for stopping the spread of all invasive species.
