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.
All interested parties are encouraged to help keep the NYS map up to date by reporting the locations of invasive species. Training is required to enter and report data and free training sessions are being offered. The session for the Long Island PRISM is being offered at the Sisters of St. Joseph campus in Brentwood.
