Long Island Invasive Species Management Area PRISM

Project Sponsor: New York State Department of Environmental Conservation - Division of Lands and Forests
End Date: June 30, 2016


We coordinated the Long Island Invasive Species Management Area (LIISMA) which is comprised of 50 partners in various government agencies, conservation organizations, and businesses on Long Island and in NYC. This partnership is one of the eight Partnerships for Invasive Species Management (PRISM) that work across NY to track and manage invasive species. Our PRISM coordinator helped partners communicate on critical issues related to invasive species; kept the partnership organized and on track by providing leadership in annual work planning and long term planning; and provided member organizations with pass-through funding for early detection; outreach and education; and invasive species management, monitoring, and reporting.
