Help Prevent the Spread of Invasive Species

Terrestrial and aquatic invasive species harm the Park’s natural environment and cause social and economic hardship to landowners and governments.  The aquatic invasive Eurasian watermilfoil can render your favorite fishing or swimming hole un-useable while Japanese knotweed roots can push through concrete foundations and asphalt driveways. Please visit these resource links below to find out more about invasive species and what you can do to help.
