Invasive species are not native to Vermont and have negative effects on our economy, our environment, or our health. ANR strives to limit the spread of invasive species currently within our borders and to prevent the introduction of new ones. The second greatest threat to biodiversity, in Vermont and across the world, is the proliferation of invasive species.
