DEC and DAM Announce Statewide Spotted Lanternfly Outreach Campaign (May 10, 2018)
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
The New York State Departments of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Agriculture and Markets (DAM) today announced the start of an outreach campaign encouraging New Yorkers to look for and report sightings of the spotted lanternfly (SLF), a new invasive threat. SLF was first found in Pennsylvania in 2014, and efforts to detect the invasive pest have increased after a single, dead SLF adult was found in New York in the fall of 2017. DEC and DAM encourage the public to be on the lookout for and report this pest. Please send pictures and note the location of where the insect, egg masses, and/or infestation signs were found, to spottedlanternfly@dec.ny.gov.

DEC Announces Release of Draft Invasive Species Comprehensive Management Plan (Apr 18, 2018)
New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
The New York State Departments of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Agriculture and Markets (DAM) today announced the release of the State's draft Invasive Species Comprehensive Management Plan (PDF | 2.53 MB) for public comment. The proposed plan is designed to minimize the introduction, establishment, and spread of invasive species throughout New York. Comments will be accepted through June 1, 2018.

New Invasive Species Regulations in Effect March 2015
New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
A regulation was adopted in 2014 that prohibits or regulates the possession, transport, importation, sale, purchase and introduction of select invasive species. The purpose of this regulation is to help control invasive species, a form of biological pollution, by reducing the introduction of new and spread of existing populations.

New Awareness Campaign Promotes Simple Steps Anyone Can Take to Prevent the Spread of Invasive Species While Recreating in the Adirondacks (May 23, 2018; PDF | 98 KB)
Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program.
The Nature Conservancy's Adirondack Park Invasive Plant Program (APIPP) is celebrating its 20th anniversary by launching a new public awareness campaign focused on the simple steps Adirondack residents and visitors can take to prevent invasive species from spreading into the places they love. The "Keep Invasive Species Out" campaign is centered around a new website, KeepInvasiveSpeciesOut.com, that provides an overview of the problem and offers simple, preventive solutions for limiting the likelihood of unintentionally spreading an invasive. Tips are given for specific outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, boating, fishing, hunting, mountain biking, horseback riding, gardening/landscaping, and farming.

Hello Emerald Ash Borer, Goodbye Ash Trees
New York Invasive Species Clearinghouse.
Since its introduction into North America, emerald ash borer has spread to 20 states and two Canadian provinces. EAB was first confirmed in New York in June 2009 near Randolph, in western Cattaraugus County. The natural spread of EAB infestations in North America is about 2 miles per year, depending on the infestation intensity. However, the rapid spread of the beetle through North America is most likely due to the transport of infested firewood, ash nursery stock, unprocessed ash logs, and other ash products. In an effort to slow the continued spread of EAB, both Federal and State agencies have instituted quarantines of infested areas to regulate the transport of ash products. Learn more about the the emerald ash borer quarantine in New York State.
