As part of the ongoing effort to maintain 100 acres of restored tallgrass prairie, Homestead National Monument monitors invasive plant species. These species are controlled in a variety of ways, including mowing, selective use of herbicides, and prescribed burning. The goal is to present a landscape that is as historically accurate as possible.
