The Terrestrial Invasive Species Response Team Returns for a Third Year!

The Terrestrial Invasive Species Response Team – a four person seasonal crew from Invasive Plant Control, Inc. – returned to the Adirondack region on June 24th to help manage priority terrestrial invasive plant infestations for the summer. The Response Team approach is a core component of an effective regional strategy to protect the Adirondacks from the harmful impacts of invasive species. Thanks to private foundation funds and the great leadership of APIPP’s Terrestrial Project Coordinator, Brendan Quirion, the Terrestrial Response Team has really made a difference region-wide knocking back dense stands of Phragmites, Japanese knotweed and other invasive plants. To aid monitoring of native plant recovery after treatment, Dan Spada and Ray Curran, esteemed plant ecologists and friends of the Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program, offered a field training that oriented the team to native flora of the Adirondacks.   

Keep up the good work fighting off invasives!
