Interpretive Summary: This article explores historical aspects of these demonstration projects and the lessons about how their outcomes assist with implementing an Ecologically Based Invasive Plant Management program. While the number of demonstration sites may be unique to Park Valley, the land-use history and changes it has experienced are commonplace throughout the West. This historical legacy and its lessons have important implications for management objectives across the West.
