DES Releases Exotic Species Program Report

The NH Department of Environmental Services’ Exotic Species Program coordinates the state’s activities to prevent, research, and control invasive plants and other species. It is funded by $7.50 from each boat registered in the state each year, much of which comes back to local towns via grants for weed control and Lake Host inspectors. This report summarizes the broad range of activities conducted by the DES between 2009 and 2012.
