New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) partners with resource managers, non-governmental organizations, industry, resource users, citizens and other state agencies and stakeholders to combat invasive species. Eight Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISMs) exist across New York State to address the threats of invasive species.

PRISMs work with DEC and other partners to identify and manage invasive species issues, while also serving as a source for regionally-tailored invasive species information. 

PRISMs deliver:

  • Planning regional invasive species management
  • Developing early detection and rapid response capacity
  • Implementing eradication projects
  • Educating - in cooperation with DEC contracted Education and Outreach providers
  • Coordinating PRISM partners
  • Recruiting and training volunteers
  • Support for research through citizen science

The local PRISM parntership for our region is the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP).
