Recorded Presentations from the Polycom Videoconference:
Think Locally, Act Neighborly to Combat Invasive Species – The Florida Invasive Species Partnership

Recorded on June 16, 2009; broadcast live via Polycom from the University of Florida Campus in Gainesville to Extension facilities in Clay, Gadsden, Hillsborough, Jackson, Lee, Madison, Miami-Dade, Osceola, Santa Rosa, Sarasota, St. Lucie, Walton and Washington Counties

Invasive species know NO boundaries.  The Florida Invasive Species Partnership (FISP) is a collaboration of federal, state and local agencies along with nongovernment organizations in Florida, formed to link efforts at preventing and controlling infestations of invasive exotic species across agency and property boundaries.  FISP has created a Web site, at http://www.floridainvasives.org/, to help connect Florida’s landowners and land managers with available technical and/or financial assistance programs and efforts to prevent or control invasive exotic species problems.

Watch the program to explore and learn how to use these resources, and link with others who are working across boundaries to combat invasive species in your county or region. A list of program and partner contacts is below. Questions about this and other Forest Stewardship Program activities can be directed to Chris Demers, (352) 846-2375, cdemers@ufl.edu
