Mission Statement

The Florida Invasive Plant Education Initiative was created to provide educators with the information and resources needed to teach students about the harmful impacts some non-native, invasive plants are having on our natural areas and neighborhoods. Our ultimate goal is for today’s youth to draw on this knowledge as they mature into responsible environmental stewards.

Description

The UF/IFAS Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants is a multidisciplinary research, teaching and extension unit directed to develop environmentally sound techniques for the management of aquatic and natural area weed species and to coordinate aquatic plant research activities within the State of Florida. The Center was established in 1978 by the Florida legislature. Directed by Dr. William Haller , the Center utilizes expertise from many departments within UF/IFAS and its Agricultural Research and Education Centers throughout Florida.
