Invasive Plants

Invasive plants have broad impacts on water quality, biodiversity, fish and wildlife habitat, tree cover, fire risk, and costs. Because invasive plants spread quickly and can displace native plants, prevent native plant growth, and create monocultures, they often reduce plant species diversity also increasing threat of fire and habitat loss. The Watershed Restoration Crew removes invasive species like Johnsongrass from riparian areas and focuses removal of more widespread species like Russian thistle from defined areas that are then replaced with native seedlings from Borderlands Nursery & Seed.
