Invasive Species

Why You Should Care
If you enjoy being out on the water, hiking in the woods, or enjoying the native wildlife outside; you should be concerned about these "biological bullies". These nonnative species out compete our native species for food, water, and light. This imbalance in the ecosystem can permanently alter the future viability of our native plants and animals.
