Managing Invasive Plants

Invasive Plant Species Management in National Parks

Invasive species continue to be introduced and found in new places. Several highly invasive and destructive species have been successfully eradicated from parks lands, but work continues every day.

The NPS has dedicated significant resources towards invasive plant species management in parks, with the support of national and regional level offices. The Invasive Plant Program, based in Fort Collins, Colorado, and individual parks fund and support 17 Invasive Plant Management Teams to provide "boots-on-the-ground" in the fight against invasive species.
