Exotic, Non-Native Eradication


As part of the mitigation process on campus, the Ground Department is responsible for the removal of non-native plant species. The Grounds Department is currently focusing on the eradication of invasive non-native species, as these types of plant can cause the most damage to natural areas. The invasive non-native species most commonly removed from FGCU’s campus include Brazilian Pepper, Melaleuca, Old World Climbing Fern, Caesar Weed, Cogongrass, Torpedo Grass, Downy Rose Myrtle, and Earleaf Acacia.
