INVASIVE SPECIES TREATMENT

The Allegan Conservation District is able to provide technical assistance, identification, and control of small populations of non-native terrestrial invasive species via the Invasive Species Strike Team. Cost share funding may be available to landowners for treating infestations of select unwanted terrestrial species through the West Michigan Conservation Network (WMCN) program. All services are funded through WMCN. The Invasive Species Team will be treating category “A” species covered by WMCN funding.

Category A Species

  • Black and pale swallow-wort

  • Giant hogweed

  • Giant and Japanese Knotweed

  • Kudzu

  • Leafy spurge

  • Poison hemlock

  • Phragmites australis
