Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISMs)

Among the 12 recommendations of the 2005 NYS Invasive Species Task Force report to the Governor and Legislature was the formation of eight Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISMs) to help prevent or minimize the harm caused by invasive species on New York's environment, economy and the health and well-being of the State's citizens. PRISMs are intended to coordinate invasive species management functions including coordinating partner efforts, recruiting and training citizen volunteers, identifying and delivering education and outreach, establishing early detection monitoring networks and implementing direct eradication and control efforts.

PRISM Listserves

To facilitate communication within and among PRISMs, eight e-mail "listserves" (or electronic mailing lists) have been established, one for each of the eight PRISMs. The PRISM listserves are managed by the Cornell Cooperative Extension Invasive Species Program. Note: only members of a listserve can post messages to that list.
