This new e-learning Web site provides science-based, introductory information about invasive plants. The five self-study modules address the purpose and history of the Refuge System, how volunteers help in invasive plant management, how refuges manage invasive plants, and tips for community outreach. The program is part of a larger U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service program in conjunction with partners to engage volunteers in managing invasive species on National Wildlife Refuges. These learning modules offer a variety of information to help you better understand invasive plants and assist in their management. Explore topics ranging from the invasion process, to management methods, to tips for giving presentations to refuge visitors, and much more. You will also have the opportunity to see how volunteers are participating in invasive plant projects throughout the Refuge System.
