Work in Parks

Working for the Future of National Parks

Just as invasive species are widespread, so are the methods and teams at work protecting national parks. The NPS protects the range of park resources from invasive species which includes both cultural and natural resources. Often, treatment of invasive species is determined by the ecosystem - the particular environment and the organisms in it - the certain invasive species is harming.
