THIS MONEY IS USED FOR PAYMENT TO INDIVIDUALS HIRED TO REMOVE NON-NATIVE INVASIVE PLANTS (NNIS) FROM OUR PRESERVES. THESE PLANTS INCLUDE JAPANESE STILTGRASS, GARLIC MUSTARD, MULTIFLORA ROSE,PRIVET, BURNING BUSH AND MANY OTHERS; THEY MUST BE REMOVED REGULARLY TO CURB THE SPREAD OF INVASIVES THAT CAN DESTROY NATIVE WILDLIFE HABITAT. WE WORK ON EACH OF OUR 12 PRESERVES ON A ROTATING BASIS BECAUSE THE INVASIVE PLANTS RETURN AND MUST BE CONTROLLED.
