[MAIPC] Impacts to tourism from invasive species

This is of major concern to me. I am thinking of Shenandoah National
Park and the George Washington/Jefferson National Forest where we have
known WLBG infestations and little is done to educate visitors. There
is no question in my mind they will be taking it down to Rock Creek Park
or the C&O Canal.
This is but a simple example of what I think you are going for. I do
include all forest users as tourists. I shudder to think of the work
needed with international tourism. I would think APHIS would be
involved in that though.
I am disappointed there is not more attention to this. I am trying to
address this through DOI, but at the moment they are all adjusting to
the new administration.
Would welcome assistance from those with stronger credentials than mine.
