Best Management Practices for Preventing the Spread of Invasive Plants is a 42-minute training video designed for land managers and those who manage road or utility corridors, which can be key pathways for the spread of invasive plants. The video summarizes key content from our BMP manuals on the same topic. We cover ways to prevent the movement of invasive plant propagules, the importance of minimizing soil and vegetation disturbance, the need to incorporate prevention practices into project planning, and how promoting awareness within our organization can enhance prevention.
