Fighting the Invaders

Feb 22, 2017

Thursday, February 23rd Black Bayou National Wildlife Refuge's forester, Chris Foster, will be giving a talk on local invasive species. The talk will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Black Bayou education center.

Invasive species come in a wide variety of living things such as aquatic plants, fish, trees, and any other species that do not naturally belong in a habitat. They can be spread without anyone even realizing they are there through boats and plant dumping. While they can be aggressive, they can also be prevented. Chris's talk will include photos to help identify certain local invasive species and tips to help get rid of them.
