The plants you see around Dubois County may be beautiful, but many of them negatively impact the ecosystem, and can even be toxic to humans. Invasive species have a greater impact on our local ecosystem than most realize, as explained by Emily Finch, Invasive Species Expert with the Dubois, Daviess, and Martin county Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD).

You don’t need to be an expert on invasive plants to do your part in protecting local ecosystems. Finch provided a few tips and tricks promoted by PlayCleanGo, an initiative dedicated to invasive species education and prevention.

The extent to which invasive species negatively impact the ecosystem can vary, as explained by Finch.

Learn more about invasive species in our local ecosystem by visiting the ISACDC website at www.isacdc.org.

If you have further questions or would like an expert review of invasive species at your own property, give the ISACDC a call at (812) 482-117, extension 3.
