Native plants provide more benefits for the environment than non-native plants, including better food and habitat for animals and pollinators. Help us protect our native ecosystem by removing invasive species and implementing sound land management practices.

  • Hear from experts on how the state park cares for native trees and plants, including how they are dealing with invasive plants such as Oriental bittersweet which chokes out native trees.
  • Learn how to identify, treat and remove invasive species.
  • Discover the importance of native plants.
