Invasive Vegetation Management Plan

Crater Lake National Park » Invasive Vegetation Management Plan » Document List

The purpose of the Invasive Vegetation Management Plan is to provide a framework for managing non-native, invasive plants in order to protect the park's native ecosystems. This plan will provide guidance on preventing new infestations of invasive plant species and outline an adaptive management process for controlling existing populations of invasive plants within the park using manual, mechanical, cultural, and chemical methods. Additionally, the Invasive Vegetation Management Plan will establish methods for tracking and reporting invasive plant species' occurrence and their control in order to measure progress gained over many years. This plan will provide the park with tools to protect and enhance native vegetation and biodiversity, and maintain the integrity of park ecosystems and their associated processes.
