Free invasive plant surveys available


Free invasive plant surveys for landowners are being made available again this year through the Indiana Invasives Initiative project.

Kaila Knies, the regional specialist who serves 15 counties, including Jackson, in southern Indiana, is now starting to book landowner surveys. Social distancing protocols will be followed. To schedule a survey, contact Knies by email at [email protected].

The project is the result of the State of Indiana Cooperative Invasives Management’s work with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service to combat invasive plants and raise public awareness of the devastation caused by these non-native pests.

Through the project, a team of regional specialists such as Knies are employed by SICIM to work at the county level with local conservation agencies to provide the surveys and technical assistance to landowners.

Knies will visit your property, identify invasive plant species, write a brush management plan and give you information on how to best control the invasive species specific to your property.
