|Botanist Larry Fowler (USDA, APHIS) teaching plant identification
Invasive plants are non-native species that can be harmful
to the environment. Kudzu, for example, is an invasive species that covers up and kills native plants. Other invasives crowd
out native plants but do not provide adequate food and shelter for native animals.
The following are invasives commonly found in the Eno River State Park.
Here is a handout that you can print and take with you to the park to
help you with identification.
