Partnership with New Jersey Invasive Species Strike Team

Friends of Princeton Open Space is a partner of the New Jersey Invasive Species Strike Team.

The Strike Team is an organization aimed at eradicating New Jersey’s newly emerging invasive species before they can cause significant ecological damage to our forests. Friends of Princeton Open Space is contributing to this cause by working to reduce emerging invasive plants on our own preserves.  We’re striving to turn Princeton’s open spaces into sources of biodiversity, to the benefit of local wildlife and neighboring ecosystems.

If you’d like to volunteer with FOPOS, to help stop the spread of invasive plants at Mountain Lakes Preserve, please contact AeLin Compton at info@fopos.org. Please also visit the New Jersey Invasive Species Strike Team website for more information on invasive species in the state of New Jersey.  Learn how to ID invasive plants with theirTarget Species Fact Sheets.  Also, help to stop the spread of invasive species in your own back yards by following their Do-Not-Plant List!
