Project Description

Invasive Species Removal

Invasive species dominate an ecosystem by outcompeting other species for available resources. By altering the balance of the system’s they invade, invasive species can root and spread with vigour, thereby eliminating the native species who cannot compete. Some invasive species are successful to the extent that their presence drastically impacts the biodiversity of a local ecosystem. Here at Cedar Haven we monitor for known invasive species and are actively working to remove Phragmites, Garlic Mustard and Common Buckthorn.
