Public Comment Period Open for State Environmental Invasive Species Plan
A public comment period will be open through June 1 on DEC’s draft Invasive Species Management Plan. The proposal contains a dozen recommendations for New York State to undertake to manage these environmental threats, which have an estimated cost to the Adirondacks of $900 million if these species are allowed to spread.
The draft plan is available here: http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/lands_forests_pdf/iscmpdraft.pdf . Comments may be submitted by email to [email protected] or sent via mail to NYSDEC, Division of Lands and Forests, Invasive Species Coordination Section, 625 Broadway, Floor 5, Albany, NY 12233-4253.
