Generic Resources and Threats to the Northern Great Plains Parks  Some of the most common threats to the national parks ecosystems include those to quality of air, quality and quantity of available water, and the parks native species. Prescribed fire is used to prevent uncontrolled forest fires and to reduce the growth of nonnative species.

Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site Resources and Threats Human impacts to Fort Union Trading Post include loss of native grass species, invasive plants and reduced river flow. Methods such as prescribed fire and the planting of native species have been used to restore and protect the site.

Niobrara National Scenic River Resources and Threats  The Niobrara River is where six major biomes converge to form a rich diversity of flora and fauna. Threats to the river arise from fire exclusion leading to the expansion of ponderosa pine into grassland area, changes in microclimates, the spread of invasive plants and the high volume of visitors during peak periods.

Floating Wetlands Structure and Impact Emergent wetland species are planted in a buoyant matrix that floats at the water surface. The roots of these plants grow through the matrix and take up the nutrients they need to grow directly from the water, potentially decreasing nutrient concentrations.   diagram,floating,wetlands,water,quality,plants,chesapeake,bay,watershed,stormwater,nutrients

Multiple Benefits of Rain Gardens Gutters and downspouts installed onto buildings direct rainwater from roofs to rain gardens. Plants with deep root systems encourage stormwater infiltration and absorbs excess nutrient runoff.

Counteracting Factors Impacting Best Management Practice Implementation  Improvements in water quality can be counteracted by changes in nutrient sources and land-use practices. Increased nutrient loads from stormwater and intensified agriculture often overwhelm the positive effects of best management practices. diagram,counteracting,factors,best,management,practices,water,quality,improvement,challenges
