What is PlayCleanGO?
PlayCleanGo started as a Minnesota State, education initiative to stop the spread of invasive species in parks and natural areas.
The goal is to encourage outdoor recreation while protecting valuable natural resources. The objective is to slow or stop the spread of terrestrial invasive species (those that occur on land) through changes in public behaviour.
The Canadian Council on Invasive Species entered into an agreement with Minnesota in late 2016 that enabled Canadian Council on Invasive Species to adapt and implement PlayCleanGo: Stop Invasive Species in Your Tracks, as a national branded program across Canada.
What Can You Do?
Become a Partner OR a Sponsor!
You and your organization can help recreationists understand the link between outdoor recreation and pathways of spread for terrestrial invasive species. We want to give recreationists a clear call to action - to be informed, attentive, and accountable for stopping the spread of invasive species.
By becoming a partner, you can spread the message: PlayCleanGo: Stop invasive species in your tracks. The objectives of the program are to be fun and to encourage recreation; be user friendly and accessible; accommodate a variety of audiences and media outlets; and be compatible with the Stop Aquatic Hitchhikers brand and other partner brands.
As a partner, you will have access to resources that have been developed using the PlayCleanGo brand. We invite you to use PlayCleanGo in your outreach efforts wherever possible. You can just drop an existing ad into your materials or request assistance in developing a new ad for a specific usage.
As a sponsor, you are critically important to sustaining Taking Action campaigns. Sponsors receive brand visibility and marketing opportunities through a variety of sponsor visibility packages, specific for each Changing Behaviour program. Each Taking Action program website will profile the relevant sponsors.
