As part of Project A.N.T. (AmeriCorps Non-native plant Terminators), AmeriCorps members focus on invasive exotic plant management and trail improvements in Florida’s state parks. Spending a majority of their time outdoors, members treat and survey for invasive exotic plants in addition to performing trail improvements and assessments. Members also recruit volunteers to assist with invasive exotic plant management, and educate park visitors and the local community about the damaging effects of invasive exotic plants on Florida’s unique ecosystems.
