About the Project: Ludwigia hexapetala, or Uruguayan water primrose, is an aggressively invasive aquatic plant. It forms dense mats that can rapidly overtake still or slow-moving water, disrupting recreation, interfering with water intakes, and reducing water quality and important habitat for fish.

When:

  • Saturday, August 5, 2017 – 9am-12pm
    • Pulling Ludwigia from the shore
  • Sunday, August 6, 2017 – 9am-12pm
    • Pulling Ludwigia from the shore
  • Saturday, August 26, 2017 – 9am-12pm
    • Pulling Ludwigia from a boat
  • Sunday, August 27, 2017 – TBD
    • TBD

Where: Each day volunteers will be at a different site. Some restoration sites are on private land, in which case we will meet at the LTWC office to arrange a carpool. Other sites are public, therefore volunteers can arrange their own transportation.

More specific details will be given once volunteers fill out the form below.
