Working Together on Invasive Species

What We Are Doing

Though not an inclusive list, learn more about some of the efforts being made by Fairfax County to control invasive species.

Invasive Management Area is a Fairfax County Park Authority volunteer program that battles invasive species, removing them and replacing them with native species.

Operation Stream Shield is a partnership between the Department of Public Works and Environmental and the Office to Prevent and End Homelessness to provide assistance for individuals experiencing homelessness and to keep streams clean through the removal of litter and non-native invasive plant species.

Countywide Strategic Plan - Environment and Energy Outcomes

Our collective work on invasive species helps Fairfax County make progress on our Countywide Strategic Plan through our environmental policies and practices that support air, water and land quality. It is important for people to have the opportunity to enjoy the natural environment, and that residents, businesses, county employees and visitors share in the responsibility to improve environmental outcomes.
