Challenges, Strategies, and Perspectives
Friday, November 6, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
The New York Botanical Garden, Ross Hall
(Check-in begins at 9 a.m. with coffee and pastries. Books available for purchase.)
Invasive species are a major threat to biodiversity worldwide and are severely impacting our regional ecosystems. This Summit will address the impacts of invasive species from a global to regional level, what is being done to manage them, how restoring ecosystems can help, and implications for the future. The morning plenary session features prominent speakers in the fields of invasion biology, restoration ecology, and not-for-profit land management. Concurrent afternoon sessions, available in addition to the morning plenary, consist of short talks followed by a moderated discussion.
Co-presented with Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management
This Summit was contracted by the Lower Hudson PRISM using funds from the Environmental Protection Fund as administered by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
