The division's programs include Invasive Plant Management, Environmental Lands, Mosquito Control, Water Resources, and Drainage. The Invasive Plant Management Section prevents the spread of exotic aquatic and upland plants on public lakes, waterways, primary drainage canals, and environmental lands.

The Mosquito Control Section strives to prevent mosquito-borne diseases by reducing mosquito populations through breeding-site inspections and spraying by trucks and aircraft.
