EcoLogic has teamed with OBG to develop a comprehensive statewide plan for all taxa of invasive species. The scope of this project requires the team to develop technical recommendations related to early detection and rapid response as well as research needs. EcoLogic will focus on enhancing coordination among stakeholders, agencies, and programs to maximize efficiency and effectiveness. We will also help to guide planning for statewide invasive species education and outreach. Development of the Invasive Species Comprehensive Management Plan was a recommendation of the New York Invasive Species Task Force established under legislation passed in 2003.
