Promoting effective management of invasive plants in natural areas and wildlands.

The National Association of Invasive Plant Councils (NAIPC) is a coalition of state and regional Exotic Pest Plant Councils (EPPCs) and Invasive Plant Councils (IPCs) representing professional natural resource managers, scientists and others with an interest in invasive plant management.

Through this website, NAIPC also serves as a contact hub for:

  • Multi-agency state invasive species councils;
  • Cooperative Weed Management Areas (CWMAs) and Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs);
  • Other partnerships based on collaborative management of invasive plants.
