From the Ground Up Interview
What are invasive species, and why should we care?
Invasive species are plants, animals, or insects that are not native to a location and have a negative impact on the area and it's species. Therefore, because these species do not have natural predators in their non-native locations, they can quickly spread and destroy the area's they invade.
Priority Species in our Counties
With a large amount of species invading our counties, we must prioritize which to combat first. Here is a list of how we prioritize species in our area: Priority Species. This list is a living document that will change over time as new species may be introduced to our area or become more widespread.
We are currently in the process of creating a new Priority Species list and will be sure to make note when it gets officially posted. We are excited to share it with everyone in the near future.
