The Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC) Invasive Plant Management Certification Program trains green industry professionals working in the coastal zone to provide sustainable invasive plant management services to clients, and to facilitate restoration of degraded coastal habitats*. Professionals having completed the two-day training are recognized as Coastal Invasive Managers by the RI Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC).
