Invasive Species Management at Deer Pond Farm
Invasive species are non-native plants and animals that reproduce rapidly and have negative impacts on the healthy biodiversity of native plants and animals. Management involves assessment, planning and action to minimize the harm.
At Deer Pond Farm, one of our actions is to conduct staff-led volunteer invasive plant working parties. We identify specific invasive plants and locations to work on as a group while sharing information on the ecology and management of specific species.
