Another threat is the clearing of riverside sites for fishing, camping, and rafting. Human recreational activities like hiking and fishing have resulted in breakage of the fragile stems of the Virginia Spirea. Attempts by botanists to germinate the seeds of this plant have only been mildly successful. To keep these plants from disappearing will require maintenance of their streamside habitat with natural flood patterns and no further damming of rivers where the plants are found.
