Invasive Species Management
Especially for those that work the land, invaders are a common nuisance and a old foe. The Conservation District is here to offer assistance. We can connect you to resources and offer consulting services for invasive management on your property.
Insects, plants, and animals can be invasive species. An invasive species is one that is not native to an area and also causes harm to the environment, the economy, or health.
The Conservation District advocates for the use of native plants in landscaping. Please see the link below for some information about native plants as well as species lists.
