Invasive species of plants can compete against and crowd out native Indiana species in our environment.
Last month, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources gave lakes across the state grant money to combat invasive plants. Two lakes in Monroe County, Lake Lemon and Griffy Lake, have both received a portion of that $580,000 in grant money.
This week on Noon Edition, we’ll discuss what invasive plants could be in your community and how they made their way to Indiana.
Join hosts Bob Zaltsberg and Sara Wittmeyer as they explore how this new DNR grant will work and how environmental experts plan to solve this problem.
