The DOI’s Strategy to Combat Invasive Species: Overview and Input Opportunities

NAISMA is compiling feedback on a proposed invasive species strategy and will send a summary of responses to the U.S. Department of the Interior.

On August 13, the Trump Administration released a draft strategic plan for combating an estimated $120 billion problem—invasive species. 

When finalized and implemented, the strategic plan (download PDF) will allow Interior to be a more responsive partner to state and Tribal agency requests for federal assistance to combat invasive species without adding regulations that impede business and our economy. Read the overview and attend listening sessions this month.
