FRIENDS OF PHEASANT BRANCH: Wetland Invasive Plant Control Planning

Purpose

The Friends of Pheasant Branch Conservancy, Inc., proposes to develop a multi-phase, multi-year plan for controlling AIS plants in the wetlands of the conservancy, especially around the big springs that feed the creek. Reed canary grass, hybrid cattail and watercress are outcompeting native plant species, and these invasives require a comprehensive, long-term strategy to reduce their dominance and encourage competition of the natives. Plant inventories, soil samples and water data will be gathered in order to prepare the plan. Signage, newsletter articles and guided field trips will be used to engage and educate the public at all steps in the plan. The final report will consist of electronic and hard copy of all raw data, plus the final plan, and a description of all public outreach efforts made.
