Intended to reduce the severity of high-priority knotweed infestations and help private landowners more reasonably control infestations on their own. APIPP works with community volunteers to secure landowner permissions so that treatment can be safely carried out by certified pesticide applicators.

SEASONAL CAMPGROUND STEWARD
State campgrounds, trailheads, and other recreational access points are high priorities for terrestrial invasive species surveillance and management due to their high levels of human disturbance and use. To address this vulnerability, APIPP hosts a seasonal Invasive Species Management Steward to survey and manage terrestrial invasive species at publicly owned campgrounds across all six million acres of Adirondack Park.
APIPP's TIS Project focuses on a suite of species wherein a combination of resources, treatment options, size of infestation, and local regulations make it feasible to carry out effective treatment programs every growing season. The list of plants and animalswithin APIPP’s treatment window is always shifting and our program works to focus on emerging speciesthat are small enough in number to eradicate from our PRISM region.
