About Us

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 (NYSDEC), New York State Department of Transportation and New York State Adirondack Park Agency, and it is housed under the Adirondack Chapter of The Nature Conservancy. Funding is provided via five-year contracts from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund as administered by NYSDEC. Since APIPP’s founding, the program has grown to include more than 30 partner organizations and hundreds of volunteers.

APIPP’s mission is to protect the Adirondack region from the negative impacts of invasive species.

We thank all of our partners and volunteers who participate in the program and share their ideas, time, and resources.
