Invasive Plants

Invasive 1Much of the management of Flint Hills NWR involves the control of invasive plant species.

Both Flint Hills National Wildlife Refuge's wetlands and uplands have been impacted by invasive plant species.  Some, like sericea lespedeza, honeylocust, johnson grass, sumac, dogwood, and eastern red ceder, are present in some areas in large, monotypic stands.  Control and eradication, a primary management goal, is an ongoing challenge.  Below are some of the most common and persistent species.
