America's National Wildlife Refuges are being threatened and impacted by invasive plants.
For refuge managers, these troublesome plants present a complex challenge that demands many resources and long-term attention.

One of a refuge's most valuable resources for addressing invasive plant problems is the dedication of volunteers. Across the country, refuge volunteers are learning about invasive plants and lending a hand in management activities such as prevention, early detection, control, restoration, and outreach.

It's all about Volunteers:
Learning & Lending a Hand is for You!

These learning modules offer a variety of information to help you better understand invasive plants and assist in their management. Explore topics ranging from the invasion process, to management methods, to tips for giving presentations to refuge visitors, and much more. You will also have the opportunity to see how volunteers are participating in invasive plant projects throughout the Refuge System.

Learn and lend a hand at your favorite refuge!
