"Though a short distance from the urban environments of Cleveland and Akron, Cuyahoga Valley National Park seems worlds away. The winding Cuyahoga—the "crooked river" as named by American Indians—gives way to deep forests, rolling hills, and open farmlands. The park is a refuge for flora and fauna and provides recreation and solitude for visitors." CVNP
The SCA Conservation Corps - Native Plant Team is partnering with staff of Cuyahoga Valley National Park to assist in removing exotic, invasive plant infestations across the Park. In addition the SCA Corps members will be working on education and outreach material to be used in community service and volunteer service days.
Some examples of invasive and exotic species are: Alliaria petiolata (garlic mustard), Elaeagnus umbellata (autumn olive), and Phragmites australis (common reed).
A list of invasive/exotic plant species can be found at:
Attached is a copy of how the Park came to be through the actions of dedicated volunteers.
