Uninvited: The Spread of Invasive Species, a brand new documentary from Westfield Production Company and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will premiere Monday, Nov. 1 on DEC’s YouTube channel.

Uninvited is an informative documentary about the damage that invasive species are causing to New York’s natural environment, communities, and economy. But it isn’t all doom and gloom – the film also highlights some of the innovative ways New York State is combating these threats, including how our tail-wagging friends are helping out. Uninvited details the collaborative work of DEC and its partners including NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets, the eight Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISMs), and New York State Invasive Species Research Institute (NYISRI). It covers both prominent emerging invasive species such as spotted lanternfly, and lesser known species of concern such as scotch broom.
