The Western New York Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (WNY PRISM) was formed to combat the spread of both aquatic and terrestrial invasive species and mitigate associated threats by providing region-wide coordination for invasive species monitoring and management. Our mission is to proactively identify, evaluate and address invasive species priorities in western New York using a coordinated partnership of local professionals, organizations, and private citizens to improve, restore, and protect aquatic and terrestrial resources. WNY PRISM is a sponsored program through the Research Foundation at Buffalo State and is hosted by the Great Lakes Center.
Please contact Andrea Locke, WNY PRISM Coordinator for more information and to see how you may become involved. Follow the events and activities at the official WNY PRISM website.
The PRISM mission is to protect New York from the harm caused by invasive species. They provide leadership, coordination, and information for their regions and are involved in all aspects of invasive species management. There are eight PRISMs located throughout the state and they need your help! Partner groups and volunteers are essential for success, making the whole greater than the sum of its parts. Funding for PRISM is provided by the Environmental Protection Fund through the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
