Finger Lakes PRISM
The Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (or “PRISM”) is an organization dedicated to preventing the introduction and proliferation of invasive species in the Finger Lakes region of New York. Finger Lakes PRISM partners with local government agencies, universities, and nonprofits to support the eradication of invasive species, provide tools to track the status of invasive populations, and provide educational information to the public.
Examples of work that FL-PRISM takes part in includes controlling water chestnut populations, maintaining an extensive boat steward program, and more! The Monroe County Soil and Water District, and other conservation districts in the finger lakes region, frequently partner with FL-PRISM to control invasive species.
