Community Conversation – Alien vs Native Species
Over the past several hundred years, humans have imported or bred plants to suit their cultural, aesthetic, and environmental needs. However, some of these efforts have enabled several species to escape, only to cause havoc in the local ecosystem. Recognition of the problems these invasive plants cause is growing, while threats to native ecosystems are increasing. This presentation with Ty Ryen from DCNR, Bureau of Forestry will introduce you to resources to help stop the introduction and spread of these invasive plants.
