A global ecological crisis, invasive species threaten the unique array of environments that sustain exemplary plant and animal communities in the Adirondack Park. In an effort to maintain the Park's significant biodiversity, the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program relies on area-wide partnerships and invasive plant distribution information to direct regional invasive plant survey, control, and outreach efforts. Program partners strive to develop integrative plant management strategies based on ecological relationships and collective problem-solving to prevent the continued introduction and spread of invasive plant species in this exceptional yet vulnerable area.
