BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. — This workshop is brought to you by the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga County and the Capital/Mohawk Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. (PRISM) Invasive species are non-native species that cause more harm than good to the environment, economy, or to human and animal health. These organisms are plants, pathogens, animals, and diseases that are originally from other countries, and have been introduced and do not have any predators to keep them under control. It is important to know what is growing on your property to protect your land values and health of livestock and pets. This workshop will cover the basics to help you understand what might be on your property.
