Invasives Preparedness for Land Conservation Organizations

Invasives Preparedness for Land Conservation Organizations, a presentation by the Rhode Island Natural History Survey at the 2007 Land and Water Conservation Summit, an event sponsored by the Rhode Island Land and Water Partnership, March 24, 2007, Memorial Union, University of Rhode Island, Kingston.

Invasives Preparedness for Land Conservation Organizations

by Hope Leeson and David W. Gregg

Abstract:

Every day, it seems, there are new invasive species threats, new research on their ecological effects, and new developments for their control. Don’t let the flood of information paralyze you into inaction. For local groups managing conservation land, the situation won’t be improved by delay and there are plenty of practical steps to take to improve your group’s invasive species preparedness and begin responding to existing problems. RINHS contract botanist Hope Leeson and Executive Director David Gregg will present elements of a good invasives preparedness strategy and practical invasives monitoring and control activities that a group can initiate to affect the situation on the ground and also help develop organizational capacity. Emphasis will be on plants and on key elements of an invasives strategy, simple first steps for monitoring and control, and resources available on the web and elsewhere.

Presentation Summary:

1. What are invasive species and why is invasive control important?

2. Invasive Preparedness Strategy Outline

3. The Easy Eight–eight species even a beginner can take on

4. The Secondary Six–six species that require a little more effort

5. Seven things your group can do this year to improve your invasive preparedness
