ESTES PARK, Colo. (AP) - Rocky Mountain National Park is looking for volunteers to help pull exotic plants, nonnative plants.

The Reporter-Herald newspaper of Loveland reports (https://bit.ly/1GycOiP ) that park staff and Estes Land Stewardship Association representatives will meet Saturday to help pull the invasive plants and learn about noxious weeds.

Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson says volunteers will need to sign in and test their skills in weed identification.

Exotic weeds are those not native to the area they are invading and often they have few effective predators or competitors to keep them in check. The invasive plants also can disrupt native species including butterflies and other pollinators.
