Invasive Species Council Capacity Survey


Recognizing the importance of a needs assessment of community capacity to identify and respond to invasive species, Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office’s Washington Invasive Species Council (WISC) contracted with DGSS to collaboratively develop and conduct a survey of Washington State municipal and tribal government organizations who may be called upon for invasive species identification and response.
