Invasive plant centers in cooperation

Growing awareness of the economic and ecological threats of invasive plants has led to the establishment of a number of regional centers of expertise and coordination in the United States. These centers have established successful programs to address the needs of public and
private natural resource managers working with invasive plants.

Current network members:

California Invasive Plant Council (Cal-IPC)
Center for Invasive Plant Management (CIPM)
Midwest Invasive Plant Network (MIPN)
Center for Invasive Species and Ecosystem Health (CISEH)
Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants (CAIP)
Invasive Plant Atlas of New England (IPANE)

Linked together as the National Network of Invasive Plant Centers, these organizations will:

  • Aggregate and coordinate existing regional information and expertise to efficiently develop and deliver comprehensive national programs.
  • Provide a clearinghouse for continuously evolving information such as: Best Management Practices, invasive species alerts, research findings, mapping efforts, and funding and training opportunities.
