The Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM) is a cooperative partnership between environmental organizations and individuals who aim to protect the Lower Hudson region from the negative effects of invasive species. Together, the LHPRISM partners and participants work together to protect the biodiversity and ecosystem services of the nine counties and boroughs which make up the Lower Hudson region through a collaborative and integrated approach to invasive species management.
One avenue of success for the Lower Hudson PRISM is to contract out projects that need more comprehensive work. An annual request for proposal (RFP) is issued to the Steering Committee for approval of the projects. Some of the contracted projects include surveying, treating, and management concepts for high threat invasive species in the Lower Hudson Region, while others provided mainly educational and outreach material to new individuals. Below you will find the Annual Reports completed at the end of each year that summarize the accomplishments of the PRISM partners.
