Native plant species are quickly being overrun by plants that have been introduced into the local environment as a result of human activity. An invasive plant has the ability to thrive and spread aggressively outside its natural range. Due to their aggressive growth patterns and a lack of natural enemies here, they spread rapidly into native plant communities. This reduces habitat diversity, food and shelter for many wildlife species, and the ability of the natural environment to perform a wide variety of important ecological functions. In an effort to combat this trend, Hermann Park Conservancy is seeking the help of concerned volunteers to remove invasive plants. This project is good for groups. Please contact Diane Kerr, Director of Volunteer Programs for further information.
