Annotation

The Krkonoše Mountains National Park is the oldest national park in the Czech Republic. Unfortunately, numerous invasive plants are taking over its highly coveted, species-rich meadows. Even local expansive species are forming monocultures and disturbing protected areas. To combat this, the Administration of the Krkonoše Mountains National Park (KRNAP) organizes professional management interventions to eradicate invasive or expanding species from certain meadow sites. These areas may include (but are not limited to): Klínové Boudy, Zadní a Přední Rennerovky, Sklenářovice, Rýchorská Bouda, Studniční Boudy, Modrý Důl, etc. Management interventions are planned, organized, and controlled by the KRNAP Staff.
