The Wisconsin Invasive Species Council recently completed the statewide strategic plan for invasive species management, and it is now available on the web: Wisconsin’s Strategic Plan
Many stakeholders and partners were involved with writing this plan and now it’s time to roll up our sleeves and develop an implementation plan to identify tasks and timelines so that we can measure our progress. To kick this effort off, the Wisconsin Invasive Species Council held a plan implementation work day on May 23, 2013 at the Pyle Center in Madison. This workday brought agency, industry, academic, nonprofit leaders, legislators, and other partners contributing to invasive species efforts in Wisconsin together to:
- Share case studies used to build the statewide strategic plan;
- Create a dialogue across agencies on providing leadership to resolve invasive species policy and management needs;
- Develop a shared vision of how we can contribute to the implementation of the recommendations from the statewide strategic plan;
- Identify next steps
Stay tuned as implementation efforts proceed!
