How You Can Help...
Learn how to identify the invasive plants that are in your area.
Make sure that seeds are not stuck to your clothes or gear. You don’t want to introduce or spread these plants to other areas!
Do not camp or travel through areas infested with invasive plants, if they can be avoided.
Clean mud or dirt off your vehicle, pets, and even your hiking boots before going onto public lands.
Wash your boat before going to a new lake, river, or stream.
Drive on established roads and ride or hike on designated trails.
Don’t plant invasive species on your land. Find native or non-invasive alternative species to plant instead. Ask your local nursery to stock native plant species.
Volunteer to help inventory or control invasive plants. Early detection and eradication of small infestations and prevention of new infestations are the most cost-effective ways to manage invasive plants. We need your help locating and eradicating the invasive plant species that have been described on the previous pages. Be on the lookout and help wipe out invasive plants.
Pass it on! Tell your friends and family about this problem.
