Steps for Creating an Invasive Species Management Plan:
- Create an inventory of any listed species on the property. The full list of Wyoming Designated and Teton County Declared can be downloaded below. These lists are updated annually to reflect newly discovered invaders. Use the North American Invasive Species Management Association (NAISMA) Mapping Standards to appropriately inventory the property.
- Create a management plan for the species found during the inventory. Management plans must include the following:
- Integrated management strategies (herbicide treatment strategies/ mechanical removal strategies/ biological control strategies)
- Adaptive planning for long term management.
