Choccolocco Creek Watershed Hosts Invasive Plant Workshop
The Choccolocco Creek Watershed held its annual Invasive Plant Workshop for people to learn about invasive plants on their land. Invasive plants can severely alter the landscape as they overrun and ruin native species and crops.
Property owners, land professionals and others were encouraged to come to this workshop to learn about pre-existing and existing invasive plants in our area. The Alabama Invasive Plant Council Professionals also talked to residents about methods on how to control and eradicate those plants using an invasive plant database.
Residents were sent home with dozens of helpful tools, websites, and test treatments to help protect their land from invasive plants.
