Meeting June 7 to focus on invasive phragmites

Wetland Watch and the Spring Lake Country Club are hosting a meeting for residents of Pettys Bayou on Tuesday, June 7. It will take place at the country club from 7-9 p.m. The focus of the meeting is invasive phragmites, a giant reed grass that has invaded Pettys Bayou, and has a presence in almost every bayou of Spring Lake. Experts say the best approach to treatment is joining with neighbors, hiring a licensed herbicide applicator, and treating as many stands of phragmites as possible at once.

At a similar public meeting on March 23, local residents saw a map of the distribution of invasive phragmites in the Spring Lake watershed. The most intensive distribution was in Pettys Bayou and Lloyds Bayou.
