The Adirondack Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM), stafffed by APIPP, is only as strong as its partners. APIPP always welcomes and appreciates participation of new cooperating organizations willing to help advance the mission of the Adirondack PRISM. Join our email listserv or connect with us via social media to stay informed of latest news and events. Annual Partner Meetings are typically hosted in the spring and fall to share updates, hear from the Adirondack community, and collaborate on shared priorities. Partners help meet the goals of the Adirondack PRISM strategic plan by taking action to prevent, monitor, and/or manage invasive species. You can find out more about being a partner below and by viewing the Adirondack PRISM Operating Principles.
Connection: Adirondack PRISM partner meetings and events provide an opportunity to engage with other organizations and individuals committed to minimizing the impact of invasive species. These meetings and events allow for sharing ideas and knowledge about natural resource management practices, exploring ways to collaborate and make the most effective use of resources, and identifying innovations.
Expertise: Adirondack PRISM partners are at the forefront of regional invasive species research and development of best management practices. Partners can access and contribute to the region’s collective knowledge of regional invasive species management issues. In addition, APIPP maintains an extensive collection of technical resources on its website, which is accessible to partners, and APIPP staff are available to make presentations at or help with events held by partners.
Recognition: Partners are recognized by APIPP in its Annual Report and in other ways. This recognition can help partners demonstrate how their individual contributions add to the collective accomplishments of the Adirondack PRISM.
Partners agree to advance the Adirondack PRISM mission in ways that are compatible with their own missions and directives. Partners also agree to respond to APIPP inquires and requests for information. Partners who actively participate in the Adirondack PRISM in one or more of the following ways are officially recognized as an Adirondack PRISM Partner on APIPP’s website and in its Annual Report.
