Aquatic Invasive Plants

Eurasian Watermilfoil

Use LIEP to learn more about common aquatic invasive plant species found in Vermont waters.  

Aquatic invasive plant species impact Vermont's ecosystems and recreational opportunities. These species can reduce native aquatic plant diversity and abundance and inhibit boating and swimming. However, there are many steps you can take to prevent the spread of these species and protect Vermont's waters. 

LIEP into action! This program will help you locate, identify, evaluate, and prevent the spread of aquatic invasive plant species. See a species that looks suspicious? Report invasive species sightings at (802) 828-1000 or
