On June 15, 2000, groups were invited by the University of Alaska, Cooperative Extension Service to meet and look for solutions for controlling noxious and invasive plants in the Interior of Alaska. After sharing what had been done the group agreed that an Interior statewide effort was needed. The group decided to establish the statewide Alaska Committee for Noxious and Invasive Plants Management (CNIPM). The purpose of CNIPM is to work for the statewide management of noxious and invasive plants in Alaska.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was developed to establish CNIPM and to secure agency and organizational support. Representatives of both private and public sectors have submitted letters of endorsement and MOU signatures. The list of signatories is quite broad. There is still opportunity to sign the MOU. Contact us for information on becoming a signatory or fill out the MOU signatory form and mail to the contact mailing address.
