Help protect the habitat!
NON-NATIVE “ALIEN” PLANTS
Plants such as Multiflora Rose, Japanese Knotweed, and Mile-a-Minute weed, threaten the SWT and the native plants and animals that live in the trail’s surrounding habitat.
Impact recreation, by becoming overgrown along the trail
Overtake and replace native vegetation used by wildlife
Reduce native biodiversity along the trail
Choke out desirable trees and shrubs
Negatively impact the ecosystem
We need your help:
To ensure everyone can continue to enjoy the SWT
To ensure native plant and animal species can thrive in the natural areas along the trail
If you love the SWT, and would like to help fight off these “alien” attackers, please consider joining the Susquehanna Weed Warriors!
