February 27th–March 3rd is National Invasive Species Week. For our part, in recent weeks the Oregon Invasive Species Council (the Council) has a unveiled a new statewide strategic plan, a working action plan with recommendations for invasive species managers in the state, an updated website, and new ways for you connect with the council.
Moving into 2017, the Council will continue to help coordinate the efforts between invasive species managers so that any Oregonian has the means to detect, eradicate, and manage invasive species to protect Oregon’s economy, environment, and overall health. With respect to Oregon’s varied natural resources, economies, and environments, we look forward to highlighting the issues and solutions of our coastal region at our upcoming Information Forum on Monday, March 20th in Astoria, OR.
If you are interested in partnering more closely with the council through shared communications, presentation at a council meeting, or documentation of your actions that help us meet the statewide strategic objectives to protect Oregon from invasive species, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check back in throughout the week to learn more about our partners that are hard at work across the state. Like OISC on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@OIScouncil) for regular updates about the work of our network.
