The Pennsylvania Governor’s Invasive Species Council is taking a regional approach in the fight against invasives. The new approach will launch as a pilot program in 13 northwest counties in July and will be a partnership with the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts. Using $210,000 from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service, the association will conduct on-the-ground projects to remove invasive species and educational outreach to help prevent introduction of invasives.
