Utilizing a Terrestrial Invasive Species Rapid Response Team for Landscape Level Management in the Adirondack Park

New York State's 6 million acre Adirondack Park holds some of the most ecologically intact ecosystems in the United States. Most of the park remains relatively free of invasive species, which presents an exciting opportunity in conservation rarely seen anywhere else in the country. The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP), a regional partnership of government and private organizations, was formed in 1998 to effectively manage invasive species at a landscape scale.
