Mission and Approach


Seventeen Counties, Five Working Groups, (Agricultural, Aquatic, Education and Outreach, Terrestrial, and Steering Committee), and multiple partners, the Finger Lakes-PRISM Mission is:

To reduce the introduction, spread, and impact of invasive species within the Finger Lakes PRISM region through coordinated education, detection, prevention, and control measures.


The vision for the Finger Lakes-PRISM (draft):

Within five years, FL-PRISM will be recognized as the primary facilitator for combating invasive species through coordinated prevention, detection, control, and education & outreach within the 17-county region. The FL-PRISM will work collaboratively with its partners and the public to provide the tools necessary to educate about and mitigate the impacts of invasive species while preventing new invasions from occurring within our region.
