New Website Layout
Welcome to the newly updated WRISC website. We have recently updated our layout, including the rearrangement of several pages. Over the coming year we also hope to add additional pages, information, and resources.
As with any change, we realize there may be some glitches. If you experience any problems, such as links that do not work, or if you have any comments on the new layout, contact the WRISC Coordinator at email@example.com or 906-774-1550x102.
Non-native invasive species can have devastating ecological and economic impacts to communities. Industries such as forestry, agriculture, and outdoor recreation are all at risk, as are native fish and wildlife habitats. Invasive species are often widely dispersed across the landscape, and do not respect geopolitical boundaries. As such, this coalition strives to combine multi-agency resources and expertise to coordinate education and management of invasive species across borders, promoting best management practices that will help to slow the spread of these invaders.
Our cooperative is led led by a Board of Directors, and operates by donations and grant awards. Want to learn more about how you can help battle invasive species in the WRISC area? Check out our Calendar for upcoming events or contact the WRISC Coordinator for more information.
