Mission Statement

The mission of the PNW EPPC is to protect Pacific Northwest landscapes from invasive non-indigenous plants by providing an open forum to share information and to promote solutions.

Description

The objectives of this organization are:

  1. To facilitate communication and to promote collection and exchange of information regarding all aspects of invasive plant status, control and management;
  2. To educate the general public and legislators on the environmental and economic impacts of invasive plants;
  3. Organize and/or support invasive plant management research efforts;
  4. To serve in an advisory capacity for the continued needs for funding, research, management and control of invasive plants;
  5. To provide a focus for the issues and concerns regarding invasive plants;
  6. To review invasive plant management problems and activities and provide updated information to interested parties;
  7. To provide forums where interested parties may participate in and share in the meetings and benefits from the information generated and promulgated by this Council.

We will also:

  • Hold regular conferences
  • Produce carefully evaluated lists of plants of concern in the region
