Workshop on managing invasive plants set for Nov. 5

The Vermillion County Soil and Water Conservation District will host a free workshop Tuesday on managing invasive plants and the benefits of classified forests. The workshop will begin at 7 p.m. in the Clinton Chapter IWLA facility at 16435 S. Rangeline Road, just west of Clinton.

Presenters include Karen Staub, Sycamore Trails RC&D Council; Bob Eddleman, Hoosier Heartland RC&D Council; and Allen Royer, Indiana DNR. Discussion will cover the identification and negative impacts of invasive plants as well as introducing the Indiana classified forest program.

It is important to control invasive plants. In natural areas, they impact wildlife by not producing optimum food and shelter to support healthy populations. In commercial agricultural areas, their presence will reduce crop yields and woodland/forest productivity. And in residential areas, they will spread easily to take over lawns and parks.

Workshops and many other activities are supported by the district’s Conservation Partners. Conservation Partners support the district’s activities not covered by government budgets. The 2013 Conservation Partners include ArborTerra Consulting, Bank of Indiana, Butler Busby Hicks Land & Auction, Ceres Solutions, Farm Credit Services, First Financial Bank, Glascock Equipment and Sales, MGS Insurance, New Ross Grain, Old National Bank and Wright Implement.

For information about the Vermillion County Soil and Water Conservation District, the Invasive Plant Workshop or the 2014 Conservation Partner program, contact the district’s office at meg-leader@iaswcd.org or 765-492-3705.
