Protecting Parks from Invasives

Over 30 University of Vermont students and members of the community worked together to remove invasive species from the Charlotte Park and Wildlife Refuge. The park is over 290 acres and made up of diverse wetlands and woodlands. The park does not have the money to hire people to cut down and get rid of unwelcome invasive species and were very grateful for the help. The volunteers removed glossy buckthorn and Japanese honeysuckle from the park. This will enable the native plants to thrive again and will improve the wildlife habitat of the park.
