Help Win the Battle Against
Invasive Species!
Free Instruction for Homeowners

This free presentation will offer tips to identify a dozen aggressive invasive plants in our area and provide best management practices (BMP’s) to control them. BMP’s aim to reduce the use of pesticides by using a variety of methods and strategies. Invasive plants vary widely in their reproductive cycles so there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to eradicating them.

Putnam County Soil and Water Conservation District and Cornell Cooperative Extension are participants in the Lower Hudson PRISM (partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management), a group of concerned organizations and individuals who work together under the auspices of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation to prevent or minimize the harm caused by invasive species.

The eight PRISMs in New York State coordinate invasive species management, recruit and train citizen volunteers, provide education and outreach, establish early detection monitoring networks and implement direct eradication and control efforts.
