CLEANING PRACTICES

  • Brush off shoes before exiting a location

    • Do this with a boot scrubbing brush (pictured) or a simple cleaning brush​

  • Clean off tools and equipment before exiting a location. These things include items such as shovels, clippers, tractors, bikes, ORVs or boats.

GARDENING PRACTICES

  • Choose plants that are native and promote native species, such as butterflies​.

  • Be aware of plants that are advertised as "fast-growing," "predator free," or "insect resistant." These plants can have adverse effects on native plants, animals and insects.

  • Do not dump yard waste in natural areas; this can spread unwanted seeds from your yard into natural areas.
