Join us in welcoming Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program’s Erin Vennie-Vollrath and Zack Simek for a free workshop during New York’s Invasive Species Awareness Week. This hands-on workshop will provide training on how to survey and identify many aquatic and terrestrial invasive species found in the Adirondacks, including those posing the biggest threat of invasion. You will also receive training on using the program iNaturalist to record and report your observations while out and about in the Park.

The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP) serves as the Adirondack Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM), one of eight PRISMs across New York. APIPP is a partnership program founded in 1998 by The Nature Conservancy, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, New York State Department of Transportation and New York State Adirondack Park Agency and is housed under the Adirondack Chapter of The Nature Conservancy. Funding is provided by the New York State Environmental Protection Fund and administered through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation via 5-year contracts. Since APIPP’s founding, the program has grown to include more than 30 cooperating partner organizations, and over 700 volunteers.
APIPP’s role is to serve as a clearinghouse of information, a coordinator of action, and a communicator of needs for invasive species issues affecting the Adirondack region. The program is only as strong as its partners and is open to any and all who are interested in participating. APIPP works throughout the Adirondack Park as well as in the northern portions of Franklin and Clinton Counties. Erin Vennie-Vollrath serves as APIPP’s Aquatic Invasive Species Project Coordinator, and Zachary Simek is APIPP’s Terrestrial Invasive Species Project Coordinator.
