Stopping the invasion

The James River Association‘s Amber Ellis had a useful blog post last week on invasive species in Virginia (March 3-8 was National Invasive Species Awareness Week). She listed the top five invasives common to the James watershed and resources for getting rid of them. It’s a topic I’ve written about in the past in Times-Dispatch columns and one that continues to bedevil local parks, including the James River Park. Of particular interest was a list from the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation defining plants as highly, moderately, and occasionally invasive.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
