Invasive Species

A new partnership expands our work to combat harmful plants

The Fells suffers from the serious environmental impacts of non-native plant species that invade and degrade native habitats.

In the fall of 2021, we were awarded a Partnership Matching Grant from DCR to expand our invasive species work to three key habitat areas in the Fells under threat by invasives.

In winter 2021/spring 2022, an ecological consulting firm developed habitat restoration plans for the habitat areas. Then, in the spring of 2023, we’ll begin working with volunteers to carry out restoration activities.

In the meantime, we continue to host individual volunteers and service groups for invasive projects across the Fells.

  • If you represent a club, company, or other group interested in scheduling a private volunteer event with us, please contact our Community Engagement and Operations Manager, Maddie Morgan.
