Everglades Invasive Species Summit

Monday, July 12, 2010
9:00am 5:30pm

As Everglades restoration progresses, we continue to face the ever-growing challenge of invasive species management. To that end, GEER 2010 will host the Everglades Invasive Species Summit on Day One of our program. The Everglades Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (E-CISMA) will present updates on operations in the Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park, the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, South Florida Water Management District conservation areas, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission management areas and tribal lands. The Invasive Species Summit will develop a shared understanding of the threat of invasive species to Florida's natural resources, economy, and quality of life.

Summit Background:
The Everglades Invasive Species Summit (EISS) is  organized annually to improve cross-agency communication and to develop an effective, coordinated invasive species control strategy for the Everglades region. ECISMA is a formal partnership between federal, state, and local government agencies, tribes, individuals and various interested groups that manage invasive species in the Greater Everglades area.

Summit Objective:
The objective of the summit is to bring together operational personnel and managers from the Greater Everglades area to discuss current and future operations, issues and successes in order to effectively and efficiently combat invasive species through the development of a multi-agency annual work plan. These discussions will acquaint participants with the various roles, activities and complexities required to manage invasive species throughout the Greater Everglades.

Who Will Attend:
The intended audience for this session includes invasive species control experts, land managers, researchers, program managers and anyone with an interest in understanding what invasive species activities are occurring within the Greater Everglades.

NOTE: There is no fee to participate in the Summit. However, ADVANCE REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED to participate. Register for the Summit through the GEER 2010 online registration. If you want to attend the remainder of the GEER Meeting, you must pay the applicable GEER registration fee.
