TC networks with a host of other key organizations and agencies involved with decision making, coordination, and educational outreach associated with invasive plant species management and restoration in the West. Consistent networking with these groups ensures that we are all kept up to date on the latest news and developments while also ensuring that our mutual efforts continue to complement and support each other, so that we are not replicating efforts.
Some of the other large-scale key organizations that TC networks with include:
Western Weed Coordinating Committee - The Western Weed Coordinating Committee (WWCC) is a voluntary organization made up of state and federal agencies, state weed coordinators, NGOs, and many other entities all concerned about invasive species, particularly invasive plant species. The WWCC and its members are dedicated to preventing the introduction and spread of noxious weeds and undesirable plants in the western United States. The committee provides a forum for discussion and resolution of problems, and operates under bylaws established in 1994.
Intermountain West and Sonoran Joint Ventures and their State Conservation Partnerships - TC is becoming more engaged in this partnership to facilitate our efforts to support those working to improve migratory bird habitat, specifically Southwestern Willow Flycatcher habitat. Working together with the Joint Ventures will increase opportunities for our partners to work with US Fish and Wildlife for funding opportunities and coordinate on policy issues.
Center for Invasive Plant Management (CIPM) - The mission of CIPM is to promote ecologically sound management of invasive species in western North America by sponsoring research, conducting public education, and facilitating collaboration and communication among researchers, educators, policy makers, natural resource managers, and the concerned public.
Society for Ecological Restoration (SER) - The mission of SER is to promote ecological restoration as a means of sustaining the diversity of life on Earth and re-establishing an ecologically healthy relationship between nature and culture.
