How Do Invasive Species Affect You?

ON a global basis…the two great destroyers of biodiversity are, first habitat destruction and second, invasion by exotic species. E. O. Wilson, Harvard University Professor

 

Our environment, our most sacred places in Door County suffer from reduced biodiversity because of introduced invasive species.  These changes negatively impact all recreational activities:

Hiking

        Birding       

Camping

Boating

Fishing

 Canoeing

Kayaking

Rock Climbing

Swimming

Geocaching

 

Invasive species effect our recreational activities and the ecosystems that we depend on for jobs and commercial resources.

Water Intake Systems
