Aquatic Invasives Grant
Aquatic Invasives Early Detection and Response
Document has 3 press releases, an educational program summary, and log of activities throughout the grant period. When we started in 2009, the site was about 5,000 square feet of Japanese knotweed on both sides of the road. The plants grew to eight feet or more and the growth was so thick that nothing else grew there. After two years of treatment, the knotweed was small enough that garlic mustard emerged. And after six years of treatment, only scattered small knotweed sprouts remain and weve really pushed back the garlic mustard. Some reed canary grass has moved in (about ten sq ft) but last fall we planted 1200 native grass plugs to try to compete with the few remaining invasives. All are still firmly rooted though they havent sprouted yet. We plan to control the remaining JK and GM by cutting and pulling each year in June, July and Sept.
