    • National Trails Day 2012

    • Chris Evans, River to River Cooperative Weed Management Area Coordinator, told the River to River Trail Society during National Trails Day Saturday the greatest invasive plant species threat to our forests are bush honeysuckle, garlic mustard and Japanese Stiltgrass. Many invasive species grow only in the sunny border zones of our forests, but these three grow within the shady forest and have the potential to choke out native plants. He asked the crowd to call state or federal officials when they find areas of these plants. During the picnic at Glen O. Jones Lake trail enthusiasts demonstrated knots and had a bratwurst feast.
