October is Firewood Awareness Month

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’s (APHIS) Hungry Pests campaign has partnered with the Nature Conservancy’s Don’t Move Firewood campaign for the first-ever Firewood Awareness Month.

The goal of Firewood Awareness Month is to raise public awareness about firewood movement as a forest pest and disease pathway using our respective social media platforms for blog posts, messaging with sharable graphics and media releases.

This month will serve as an important hook for stakeholders to understand how their choices can slow the spread of forest pests. Tools and resources are available at http://www.dontmovefirewood.org/blog/free-resources-firewood-month.html.
