Invasive Plant Management Plan and Environmental Assessment

Invasive Plant Mangaement Plan and EA - (.pdf)

Non-native, invasive plants are invading our national parks, causing tremendous damage to our resources, thereby threatening the structure, organization, function, and overall integrity of the natural ecosystems we aspire to protect. Controlling invasive species is a serious challenge facing Dinosaur National Monument – 75 species of non-native plants occur in the monument. Of these, 24 are of particular concern because of their aggressive nature and ability to displace intact, native vegetation communities. This Plan and Environmental Assessment outlines weed management strategies (as alternatives) based on principles of Integrated Pest Management that address the use of controls including some or all of the following: mechanical, cultural, chemical, biological, and prevention techniques.
