Exotic Plant Management Plan for Alaska Parks - August Scoping Newsletter

The National Park Service (NPS) is developing an Exotic Plant Management Plan to address a persistent and growing problem with exotic (i.e. non-native) plants in Alaska's National Park System units. We are preparing this plan and environmental assessment (EA) to consider chemical and biological control methods where physical control methods have failed or are unlikely to stop aggressive plants. Control methods for exotic plants involve potential impacts to natural and cultural resources and human health. This newsletter is the start of the public involvement process. We want your thoughts and ideas to help us identify pertinent issues and develop appropriate alternatives for the plan.
