Description of invasive species management work:

I am the new Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) manager for the Catskill Regional Invasive Species Partnership (CRISP). CRISP is one of the eight Partnerships for Regional Invasives Species Management (PRISM) in New York State. The PRISM covers primarily the Catskills and contains parts of the Delaware, Susquehanna, and Hudson watersheds. I have worked in the CRISP PRISM for the last 5 years on various AIS projects and overseeing the CRISP Watershed Steward Program. MY new position allows me to focus more on AIS detection and management. Right now my top priorities include the spread of quagga mussels from Otsego Lake, Frog-bit and water chestnut in the region, and other tiered species.
