ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

How has this Project Benefited Invasive Species Management Efforts at Your Station? Prior to this project this refuge did not have an invasive species management program. Since the beginning in FY2007 we have identified the most intrusive plants and have begun mapping and treatment at the same time.
What are some of the Lessons Learned and/or Troubleshooting Points that could be Shared with Others Engaged in Similar Activity?
