Program Summary

    The Invasive Species Leadership Team was established by a CECW-CO Memorandum dated 13 July 2005. The team was established in order to provide direction to ongoing research programs, represent the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) on regional invasive species councils and to assist USACE Headquarters in the development of national invasive species policy and program management.
