Odiorne Point State Park Invasive Plant Management
Odiorne Point State Park covers approximately 334 acres along New Hampshire’s picturesque coastline. The park has some of the rarest ecosystems in the state such as coastal pitch pine forests, dunes, and salt and barrier marshes. Unfortunately, the value and integrity of these ecological resources have become degraded by severe infestations of invasive plants. Not only have the natural habitats within the park become degraded, but dense thickets of invasive plants have reduced opportunities for education, recreation and wildlife viewing.
Supported by the Coastal Watershed Invasive Plant Partnership, the community supported restoration initiative at Odiorne Point State Park utilizes professional services as well as volunteer contributions to implement on-the-ground ecosystem restoration projects at the park. The restoration work is guided by the 2010 Invasive Plant Management Plan for Odiorne State Park, which was funded by the NHCP and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration.
