The Council is co-chaired by the Secretary of the Interior, the Secretary of Agriculture, and the Secretary of Commerce. The duty of the Council is to provide national leadership regarding invasive species issues.
Purpose of Meeting: The meeting will be held on June 14-16, 2011 in Denver, Colorado, and will focus primarily on invaders in the intermountain West. The meeting will focus on adapting management of invasive species in the vast Rocky Mountain/High Plains region in order to gain new understanding of landscape ecology, climate change, land development, introduction pathways, and new invaders. ISAC will also consult with Western-based scientists and practitioners on problems and potential solutions, as well as evaluate on-the-ground issues firsthand, thereby determining how management methods Start Printed Page 30956and practices can be adapted in the West to prevent and manage invasive species.
