Education and Outreach

Many regulatory programs are reactive –responding to a problem or pest once it has arrived.  Education and Outreach, however, is proactive – seeking to actively avoid a problem before it arrives.  While the impacts of such proactive programs are harder to measure, it cannot be disputed that they aid in pest exclusion, earlier pest discovery, and a larger network of informed citizens and agencies on the lookout.  Click on each of the orange tabs above for more information on how we use Education and Outreach at Clemson to make South Carolina safer from invasive pests that threaten our state.
