Invasives Strike Force -- Parks

List of Parks

Where can you work?

The following is a list of parks (by state and by county) which have trails that are maintained by the NY-NJ Trail Conference or are available to be assigned to ISF volunteers through separate agreement with the park.

There are other smaller parks and trails maintained by the Trail Conference that are not on this list which can be surveyed. Those parks and trails are not excluded- if you prefer to survey a park which is not on this list, please ask us. Any parks in New York may be surveyed as long as they have public trails.

(What does Phase 1 and Phase 2 mean?  Phase 1 is the initial survey for common invasives, Phase 2 is the advanced survey for emerging species.)
