Invasive plants are non-native species that grow quickly and aggressively, spreading and displacing native species.

These foreign invaders are often introduced to new regions from their native habitat. Within these new habitats, invasive species have the potential to cause harm to the ecosystem and economy, as well as well human and animal health. Pennsylvania Sea Grant coordinates action among local organizations, agencies, landowners, land managers, students, and volunteers to manage common weed species and control their introduction and spread.
