Delaware Conference Addresses Invasive Species

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP) - State and federal officials are joining with environmentalists in Delaware for an annual conference on preventing and controlling invasive plant and animal species.

Wednesday's conference at the agricultural museum in Dover is sponsored by the Delaware Invasive Species Council, which includes representatives of state, federal and local agencies, academia, and environmental groups. The conference will include presentations on invasive plants and pollinators, urban forestry and fire program initiatives in Delaware, and Maryland's nursery plant signage law.

The spread of invasive species is growing problem in Delaware and across the country, as they harm native species by competing for resources and disrupting natural habitats. Officials say invasive species also can spread rapidly, affecting property values, agricultural productivity, fisheries, and outdoor recreation, as well as the overall health of an ecosystem.
