Climate resilience is a high priority for protecting wildlife habitat and ecosystem services. The health of watersheds is critical for protecting water quality downstream. Invasive plant management can protect such ecological function and support resilience to climate change. This report describes our perspective on connections between invasive plant management and climate resiliency, and provides guidance for land managers on how they can incorporate climate resilience into their invasive plant management projects. Some of these recommendations are simple and can be adopted readily, while others require significant capacity.
