California Invasive Plant Council - Prevention
California Invasive Plant Council.
Cal-IPC has published two prevention best
management practice (BMP) manuals: one for land
managers, and one for transportation and utility
corridors. The goal of the manuals is to present
voluntary guidelines that help those managing
wildlands in California to prevent accidental
spread of terrestrial invasive plants. Cal-IPC's
technical advisory teams included over fifty
representatives from local, state and federal
agencies, utilities, land trusts, and university
extension. Also see Prevention
