Our Approach

The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP) is a clearinghouse of information and a coordinator of action for invasive species threats to the economy and ecology of the Adirondack region. APIPP one of eight state-wide Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISMs). Our services stretch throughout all 6 million acres of Adirondack Park as well as in the northern portions of Franklin and Clinton Counties.  

APIPP's most recent 5-year strategic plan describes the vision for addressing invasive species in the Adirondack region and charts a path forward with clear goals and actions to stay on track. Many of the actions are already underway, but some key initiatives will require local ingenuity, state leadership, and sustained funding to maintain progress. APIPP's programs are only as strong as our partner network and our team is always interested in building connections with new stakeholders, public agencies and municipalities, community groups, researchers, and organizations -- get involved with APIPP today!
