Check Lists and Field Guides

In collaboration with Professor Charles Breen and the NVRA we have revised the existing Alien invasive species guide. This Guide has three useful parts:

1. Legal Obligations - explains the categories and their importance and what it means to have species that fall within these categories, on your property.

2. Identifying Alien Invasive Plants - a list of 30 species classified as invasive in the area, with illustrations and colour pictures as well as flowering times and alternative indigenous species to replant your garden with.

3. Control of Problem Plants - covers a short legal background and methods (mechanical) of small-scale control.
