Description
America's spectacular public and private lands and waters provide some of the greatest opportunities for outdoor recreation in the world. However, these beautiful and inspiring natural places in which we enjoy our outdoor recreation heritage are under attack from hundreds of invasive plants, animals, and pathogens. These exotic invaders disrupt the natural ecological balance of these places and can negatively impact the quality of our outdoor recreation experiences, reduce access to these areas, and can threaten human health and safety. The loss of outdoor recreation uses in an area due to invasive species infestations can drastically impact local recreation-dependent economies. In response, outdoor recreation enthusiasts-campers, hikers, climbers, bikers, boaters, OHV riders, skiers, horseback riders, guides/outfitters, and many others-are fighting back to protect and enjoy the places they love by becoming aware of what they can do and taking steps to prevent the spread of these invaders. Prevention and control of invasive species is an achievable goal linked directly to common outdoor recreation ethics and stewardship principles. By working together, all of us can keep America's lands and waters protected for future generations.
