Crater Lake employees addressing an invasive plant population

Invasive Vegetation Management Plan

Park Staff have completed drafting the Invasive Vegetation Management Plan Environmental Assessment (EA) and released the document for public review. This plan will guide management of invasive vegetation at Crater Lake National Park (CRLA) for the next 15 - 20 years. The plan's proposed action represents the best approach to managing invasive vegetation in a proactive and effective manner that upholds both the protection of employee and visitor safety and the protection of natural and cultural resources. The proposed action would utilize an adaptive management framework to evaluate the most effective and appropriate control methods for each invasive plant species and utilize approved treatment methods while retaining emphasis on prevention, early detection and rapid response, control, effectiveness monitoring, outreach/education, and collaboration.

The National Park Service is seeking your public input on the actions proposed in the Vegetation Management Plan Environmental Assessment. Comments about any aspect of the EA can be submitted during the 30-day public review period, from April 3 until May 3, 2017.
