PlayCleanGo is an education and outreach program for outdoor recreationists that encourages outdoor recreation while protecting our valuable natural resources.  The objective is to slow or stop the spread of terrestrial invasive species (those that occur on land) through changes in our behaviour. PlayCleanGo is designed to foster actions and interrupt recreational pathways of spread for invasive species. 

PlayCleanGo is a program originally developed by a group of interagency partners in Minnesota, including the University of Minnesota Extension, Minnesota Departments of Agriculture and Transportation, and Explore Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. 

PlayCleanGo is currently sponsored by the State of Minnesota and USDA Forest Service. There are over 212 PlayCleanGo partners across North America, including the Alberta Invasive Species Council (AISC).

 Check out for information on the positive change spreading across North America.
