Invasive Species Advisory Committee

Read the 2012 Annual Committee Report (PDF, 550 KB)

The Invasive Species Advisory Committee (Committee) is a statutory body created in 2008 by Title 17, Section 9 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) to provide information, advice and guidance to the Invasive Species Council. Up to 25 members from stakeholder organizations described or specified in the law constitute the Committee. Among the efforts of this committee are:

  • assisting the Council in developing a four tier classification system for nonnative animal and plant species called for in Title 17, Section 9 of the Environmental Conservation Law (ECL)
  • preparing a white paper advising the Invasive Species Council on preventing the spread of aquatic invasive species by boats and trailers
  • assisting the Council in drafting a proposed legislative bill aimed at reducing the spread of aquatic invasive species by boats and trailers

Future efforts will likely include advising the Council on preventing the spread of invasive species through other pathways, identifying and assessing existing efforts and advising the Council on how to implement effective invasive species spread prevention measures.
