The Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP) Spring Partner meeting on April 27 is a great opportunity to find out the latest news about invasive species in the Adirondacks and to connect with partners from across the region. Participants can join virtually or in person.
The 2023 Spring Partner meeting will begin with an overview of APIPP’s 2023 workplan and the species APIPP is focusing on this year. APIPP’s Conservation and GIS Analyst, Zack Simek, will present on the first year of a new knotweed management study and he will give an update on the hemlock woolly adelgid infestation in the Lake George region. APIPP's Aquatic Invasive Species Coordinator, Brian Greene, will share the results of a new analysis of within-lake AIS vulnerability. The morning presentations will close with NYSDEC's Molly Hassett presenting about invasive species and the connection to NY's Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act.
Following the morning presentations from 10:00am to noon, partners attending the in-person meeting will have an opportunity to share successes and plans over an informal lunch from noon to 1:30pm. Please bring your own lunch; drinks and dessert will be provided.
The meeting will be held at The Nature Conservancy’s office at 8 Nature Way in Keene Valley, NY, with a Zoom option for those who wish to attend the morning session virtually. If you are joining us in person, please come a little early to say hello, grab some coffee, and take a seat.
