ISN (and specifically @Rebecca Koteskey) has been working on invasive species ordinances with local governments lately, and we thought some of you all might like the templates we share!  There are a few we're working with:

A Phragmites-specific ordinance template


A broader invasive species ordinance


The ordinance for a municipality to adopt ISN's Planting Guide (e.g. when developers are putting in new landscapes, what they can't plant)



If you have questions or your own ordinances (I know other folks have them), let's put them in this thread for reference!
