Hendricks County Invasive Management Group Reviews First Year

Looking back through its first year, Hendricks County Invasive Management Cooperative recognizes progress in combating plants that don’t belong in the local environment.

Through year’s end 2021, HC-IMC had organized teams for 13 Weed Wrangles, primarily at local parks, conducted five invasive surveys and paid 17 technical assistance visits or calls.

The group convened four steering committee meetings, and three outreach and education meetings.

Roughly 500 acres have been surveyed and/or invasives removed.

The group will continue work during 2022; it also wants to expand its steering committee membership.

HC-IMC’s mission remains: “Recognizing the negative impact of invasive plant species on human, animal, native plant health, and the environment, the Hendricks County Invasive Management Cooperative provides education, resources and training on the identification and removal of those species.”
