Japanese Stilt Grass Removal

Posted by: FLBC In: Conservation|Events

Special thanks to Gabe, Rudd Moe, Marian Dombrowski, Paivi and Matt Spoon, Pat Nelson, Norm Oslik, Cathy Smith, and Marc Imlay of AWS. They scouted out Japanese stilt grass which loosens the soil which then flows into the Chesapeake Bay, taking with it vital nutrients. They spent a productive Saturday removing a huge area of it near the stream and Route 50.
