Invasive Species on Refuge Lands

As part of the natural resource inventory of refuge lands, refuge biologists, with the help of student interns and volunteers, collect data on the presence and abundance of invasive species. Then an assessment will ensue to determine which of those invasive species threaten the health of valuable wildlife habitat or other important resources. A plan is then developed that lays out a course of action. Invasive plant control work is already underway on several refuge properties.
