Finger Lakes PRISM Field Guide and Fact Sheets Are HERE!

The Finger Lakes Institute and Finger Lakes PRISM have now published the invasive species field guide with over 100 pages of resources to help your identifying invasive and native species in the region. This guide was created in response to the growing threat of invasive species in the Finger Lakes region, with the intention of helping members of the public identify local flora and fauna and learn to distinguish between invasive species and native species.

This guide is applicable to the counties within the Finger Lakes Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM): Broome, Cayuga, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Livingston, Madison, Monroe, Onondaga, Ontario, Schuyler, Seneca, Tompkins, Tioga, Steuben, Wayne, and Yates.
