    Pacific Northwest invasive plants negatively impact native plants wildlife and whole ecosystems These invasives displace native plants degrade habitat and recreation opportunities as well as physically and chemically alter soil properties and fire frequencies Additionally invasive plants can jeopardize endangered plants some of which are at risk due to invasive species and further decrease biodiversity Monetarily in the United States these damages and losses can cost up to 138 billion

    to spread across urban suburban rural and wild landscapes they are not specific to the areas that they invade These infested areas then provide seed sources for invasion of the neighboring areas Invasive plants are especially problematic when the impacted species are keystone species causing disturbance of the food web structure and biodiversity functions By removing the natural barriers between non indigenous and native species as humans are doing at a phenomenal rate we are altering the genetic diversity of the native species and native communities as well as homogenizing the biology of the region Biological distinctiveness of regions should be protected and embraced As Darwin observed there is no doubt that our future world will be more homogenous than it is now We can slow the rate of change if each individual becomes more aware of the problem and what can be done to protect the native Pacific Northwest environment The first line of defense is knowledge as well as political action to slow the introduction and spread and finally control of the invasive plants already established here Knowing what species are problems and taking action against them are the best defenses against the spread of invasive species Individually and collectively we can make a meaningful difference in catching stopping and controlling invasive species to enrich and foster the diversity of the native species and habitats of the PNW History The Pacific Northwest Exotic Pest Plant Council PNW EPPC was formed in December of 1993 and exemption status was granted by the IRS in late 1996 After several newsletters meetings a conference and other activities the PNW EPPC became inactive in late 1997 as the small group of initial founding members moved on In September of 2006 the PNW EPPC was revised at the Meeting the Challenge Invasive Plants
