Office of the Secretary

Invasive Species Advisory Committee

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of public meetings of the Invasive Species Advisory 


SUMMARY: Pursuant to the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee 
Act, notice is hereby given of meetings of the Invasive Species 
Advisory Committee (ISAC). Comprised of 30 nonfederal invasive species 
experts and stakeholders from across the nation, the purpose of the 
Advisory Committee is to provide advice to the National Invasive 
Species Council, as authorized by Executive Order 13112, on a broad 
array of issues related to preventing the introduction of invasive 
species and providing for their control and minimizing the economic, 
ecological, and human health impacts that invasive species cause. The 
Council is co-chaired by the Secretary of the Interior, the Secretary 
of Agriculture, and the Secretary of Commerce. The duty of the Council 
is to provide national leadership regarding invasive species issues.
    Purpose of Meeting: The meeting will be held on June 22-24, 2010 in 
San Francisco, California, and will focus primarily on aquatic 
invaders. The Bay Area was chosen as the meeting location because it is 
one of the most invaded marine/coastal environments in the world, with 
over 50 invasive species that threaten the Bay's vibrant economy. ISAC 
will provide recommendations to the Council concerning both the unique 
challenges faced by the Bay Area, and broader challenges faced by NISC 
agencies elsewhere in the nation. ISAC will also address the complex 
relationship between climate change and invasive species, opportunities 
for green jobs creation within invasive species efforts, ballast water 
related issues, and the development of state invasive species councils.

DATES: Meeting of the Invasive Species Advisory Committee: Tuesday, 
June 22, 2010 and Thursday, June 24, 2010; beginning at approximately 8 
a.m., and ending at approximately 5 p.m. each day. Members will be 
participating in an off-site field tour on Wednesday, June 23, 2010.

ADDRESSES: The Argonaut Hotel, 495 Jefferson Street at Hyde, San 
Francisco, California 94109-1314. The general session on June 22, 2010 
and June 24, 2010 will be held in the Golden Gate Ballroom.
