Description

Project A.N.T. members serve in pairs (or more) at a designated “host” state park (opportunity to work in other parks as well throughout the term) and focus on habitat restoration by managing invasive plants in some of the most pristine real Florida environments. Members reduce invasive plant infestations through various land management techniques including but not limited to herbicide use/manual removal, recruiting volunteers & educating park visitors, and conducting outreach at schools and events, etc.

While in the field managing invasive plants members use the following methods:

Survey and identify infestations
Research and/or discuss proper herbicide type/technique with park/district biologist
Actively treat and record outcome (coordinate strike team with other A.N.T.s)
Retreat as necessary - keep records

These members may recruit volunteers to assist in invasive plant management and work with Project R.O.A.R. to conduct outreach and utilize opportunities to interpret the A.N.T.’s focus in parks, at park events, community events, schools, and other venues as appropriate.
